I Need You. Renew My Strength.

Emotions. I know how dangerous they can be if we follow them as leader in life. There I sat ‘feeling’ depleted. I cried out “Father I need Your wisdom to figure out what is going on with me! Holy Spirit You indwell me. You know this body. Why is it tired?" Have you ever felt this way?

We are so affected by our emotions. They can lift us up or drag us down! At this time for no apparent reason, I felt in a pit. It was wrong! So I prayed praise and worship to  my God. I did not 'feel' like it, but I knew it was necessary.

You are my God. I love You, praise You and worship only You! You are Creator and Your creation sings Your praises.  From the light of the stars and moon in the black sky to the sunrise of splendor calling forth a new day, Your heavens praise You and bring You glory. Perfection in the seasons of the flora as their leaves and flowers bloom forth in glory ~ for a short time ~ and then die until the next time; and the leaves on the trees die in Fall and the tree replenishes itself through the winter until Spring.

Do I go through seasons too? Seems I need replenishment in my spirit. Is it winter for me? You designed the flora to go through winter ~ do humans too? Then replenish me Oh Lord God Almighty!

Feeling like a soldier all alone out there. So many battles to be won. But strength waning. Without You Lord, I am totally useless! Then Lord You spoke to me through Isaiah:

Isaiah 43:1-2
. . . Fear not, for I have redeemed you [ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives]; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.

My God, You know me by name and You have called me. I am Your precious child. You call, I come to kneel before Your throne. You pick me up and sit me in Your lap and put Your loving arms around me. Ahhh. . . I am there like a toddler with a father’s vigor and love flowing around me, in me, and replenishing me fully. Know not how long I was there, but strength returned, and I’m again ready to be His soldier and go out into the world and battle for the lost.

Holy God, be Lord indeed over every situation ~ give me wisdom, words to speak, a heart overflowing with love! Father, I am no longer feeling small and alone, because You reminded me I have You in me and with me always. I stand strong again. Thank You!

Throughout this grand pattern of things you'll secure an A+ with regard to hard work. Where exactly you actually misplaced me ended up being in the details. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more true right here. Having said that, let me reveal to you what did give good results. The authoring is actually incredibly powerful which is possibly the reason why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can certainly notice the jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not convinced of just how you appear to connect your details which help to make the actual conclusion. For now I will yield to your point however trust in the foreseeable future you connect the dots better.

Thank you for your comments. I'm noot sure which dots you would like me to connect, but the main one is I serve a powerful God who cherishes me. When I have a problem I can go to Him and He helps me. He speaks to me in different ways like through His Word, The Bible, or in a still small voice. Do you know my God?

Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It's on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Superb choice of colors!
