DEMANDS, SET BACKS AND DISAPPOINTMENTS
"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." Isaiah 40:31 (RSV)
Why is it that no matter how happy my life is I still experience mental "down" periods?
A project didn't work out, a grandchild has disappointed me, I never expected this huge repair expense! Sometimes these "speed bumps" on life's road come too close together.
If I'm not careful, my mood starts "south." It is then that I must remind myself that the Holy Spirit is always with me. The two of us can overcome and help me cope. All I have to do is ask.
[This scripture applies to both physical and mental situations.]
Prayer: Lord, help me remember that you are with me always. I don't have to solve or overcome problems by myself. With your help, mental and physical challenges lose their influence. Thank you for your constant presence in my life. Amen.
