Thought for the Month

Hows your waiting?

There are times when we feel weak, at the moment it seems like it is most days for me!
Even Rebekah (my youngest) found it tiring and was weak after a day out at the Melplash show! It is ok to feel tired after a long day, but if you are feeling tired and weak most of the time, you don’t need to stay like this. Remember you are not on your own and God has made a way for you.
In Isaiah 40:29 –31 it says...
He gives power to the tired and worn out, and strength to the weak.  Even the youths shall be exhausted, and the young men will all give up. But they that wait upon 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.
I am seeing many people get tired and weak spiritually, and I am sure it is because we are not waiting on the Lord. Perhaps we are waiting
on other people? Our whole focus is on what others are doing! The internet is full of chat rooms of ones we know and lots of others. All interested in what other people are doing! Then you have the T.V and radio and even books. It’s no wonder we are weak and tired. So this month I would recommend you to do some swapping, instead of spending most of your time following others, exchange it for waiting and following Christ. Find some scriptures and meditate on them. Put some calming Christian music on and just sit or kneel for a few minutes. Get lost in the Wonder of Him, talk to Him, and listen to what He has for you.
I believe if we do this for just a small part of the day, everyday, we shall renew our strength and starting soaring through the days! Here are a
few scriptures to start you off. Don’t just read them, meditate on them.
1 Chronicles 16:8-11 Psalm 18: 1 -6
Psalm 8 Mark 12: 28-34
Psalm 18: 28 –39,Ephesians 3: 16 –19
With my love and praying every blessing for the month. Andrew
