Some days, for no discernible reason, are just harder than others. It all feels even more devastating and never ending than normal and we have trouble praying, partially because we feel like we're saying the same things over and over again and partially because we're just so weary. Yesterday, Kyle and I were feeling pretty down and overwhelmed by everything, though nothing had happened to trigger the struggle. I was praying for help recently and found this:
'Why do you say, O Jacob,
and complain, O Israel,
"My way is hidden from the Lord;
my cause is disregarded by my God"?
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not faint.'
Isaiah 40: 27-31
