“As thy days, so shall thy strength be.”Deuteronomy 33:25 KJV
As my days during this last week have become heavy-laden with increasing RA flares, I have recognized the call of my Lord. He does send us into places of rest, places where our strength can be filled with Him, places where the moment is enough.
And He has called me into that moment. A moment to rest with HIM.
Sometimes He sends that call into the very midst of our moving, times when it might not make sense for our agendas. While pondering His call, I sent an email to a friend, and I expressed the longing in my heart:
“I long to accept when He first calls, and not malinger at the doorway, wishing for my own way.”
I am not sure how long this pause will be. I hope to be back in this place for November, but God sees the path that is necessary for me. And so I am trusting Him in this waiting once again.
Are you feeling the nudging for a pause, for a time to come away with Him?
I so long to pray with you my dear friends. This world seems to be reeling under a weight of its own pain. Perhaps we all need to find a way to pause and listen for HIS calling.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for the ways that You look upon our days. When we feel the weight of the impossibility before us, thank You for being the grace that we need. Thank You for calling us away from the stress, away from the worries, and into Your own peaceful heart. We lift up our pain to You now, and ask You to carry us into Your heart. Will You direct our prayers and our steps with You here? We pray for our loved ones in this world of chaos, and we ask for you to show them Your own dear grace and help. Show us Your salvation, oh Lord. We trust You in this place of waiting.
In Your name we pray,
