Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Some days I feel overwhelmed by the busyness of life itself. Sometimes it's physical pain or tiredness. Being aware of the pain that family and dear friends are going through can also overwhelm.
Going through tough times needs courage and though I don't always feel I have enough, God is always there to see me through. His Word is true and I can do everything through him who gives me strength. I always know that... He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Isaiah 40:29
Father, I am weak but you are strong. Through the struggles of day-to-day busyness, pain and weariness, I look to you for the courage to go on. Help me to do what I need to do in your strength. Amen
