Encouragement from the Word


September 4, 2007


I hate sitting and spinning my wheels.  It seems I do that more often when I don’t spend time in the Word.  My soul starves for lack of food… and the table is always spread before me!!

Tonight I was looking over some notes I made on some scripture I found this past week.  There is such hope for all of us who suffer disorder or illness!  This life is precious to God and He takes account of our sorrows and hurts.  He will make all things new someday, and give us eternal life where there is no sickness, death, sorrow, or tears.  No shame.  No guilt. 

Psalm 56:8You have kept count of my tossings and caught all my tears in your flask.

Joel 2:25 – I will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten…

Isaiah 35:9-10 – No lion will be there, nor will any ferocious beast get upon [this road]; they will not be found there.  But only the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord will return.  They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their headsGladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.

Psalm 30:5 – Weeping may remain for the night, but joy comes in the dawn!

God promises this.  And God is not man… he always keeps His promises.


Well… how about that?!  I looked into His word and I was comforted!  When I look to him, my eyes are not on me.  I put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness and He has lifted the weight and calmed my restlessness.
