Oh my weary soul how much I have sensed your fatigue. You have pushed through and fought through the heartache and through the nonsense. My soul, how you have surprised me with the inner strength that has erupted within you! You have chosen to move forward bravely through the fear and through the the trials. You have chosen to stand in faith. You are believing there is room for hope when all you have seen up to this point is reason to lose hope.
The guilt is coming with a reckoning. It beckons you to condemnation. It desires for you to admit defeat. Don’t surrender to it. There is no reason to give in. There is no end in sight to this struggle, yet you know deep down that there is a God who knows the end from the beginning. He has already determined the outcome and He will help you face it with courage.
Praise erupts within you and has not yet been silenced. Proclaim God’s goodness. Remember His faithfulness. It is not time to question what He is doing. Do not let the confusion steal away your trust in God, the author and finisher of your faith. He stands with you and He does not grow weary. He will silence your fear and help you see through the fog. He will give you clarity and vision. You will dream again. You will have renewed hope.
The raw pain and the hopelessness you feel He knows. He is empathetic and compassionate. He is surrounding you with love and healing the brokenness. In the cursing and the heat of the moment He remembers you are human. He does not condemn or judge your raw emotion. Do not hide from Him. This is the time to draw closer. He won’t turn you away. He is waiting for you.
Oh my weary soul stand firm in your faith and trust He is working. Remain steadfast. He is moving on your behalf and He has definitely not forgotten about you. He sees you. He knows you. He will heal your wounded wings. You will soar again. You are not a flightless bird. You are meant to soar and to see new heights. In the healing you will see He will be your strength. He will be the air beneath your wings. You will rise above this darkness.
Oh my soul take heart for He has overcome the world. He has bore your pain and He is fighting with you. He is leading you into battle with the proper defense. You are not running into open fire without a shield. He is your shield. This world’s arrows will not destroy you. They will be deflected. You will be victorious. He said so in His Word. So hold to it.
Don’t cease to praise Him. Don’t wait until you see the victory to proclaim it! My soul you will see soon enough that everything will be alright in the end. Just wait. You will rejoice and see your miracle come to pass. Be still and rest now. He is working in your waiting.
