Beloved, how wonderful You are! How great are your works! I continue to marvel at your incredible mercy and love, especially as we labor through trials. Through it all you have revealed your glory!
“And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
or the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
I’m still in awe of what you have been doing and how you have revealed the mystery of your love and grace through this hardship we’ve been under. It’s hard to even imagine that amidst my grief and suffering, your love was actually being revealed! It is undeniable! Everyone who saw it experienced your love.
Not only did I recieve your comfort, encouragement and peace, you expressed those profound gifts to everyone I came in contact with. And all I can say is wow. The strength and endurance you gave never ceases.
Days later, still in turmoil, still in the midst of suffering, your power continues to manifest in me and around me and through me. And through it all my faith has grown stronger and more solid. That is who you are, God. You are everlasting. You are powerful. You give strength to the weary and you multiply it!
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
Thank you, God, for strengthening me, for teaching me your abundant love, and for enduring with me when I felt so tossed by the waves. With a word you spoke my world into stillness and peace. And with all my words I want to praise you!
