IMG_5272On Wings as Eagles

Have you ever had that feeling that you were so eager for time with the Lord that you would do almost anything to carve out that window with Him?  That has been my story the last few weeks.  I have been longing for quality time with my Abba.  There has been so much transition and adjustments with starting a new job and my life has felt frenetic. Over these past weeks I could feel our heavenly Father beckoning me to come close.  I could feel him pursuing and asking me to seek Him out.

Tonight I have given in and it is the sweetest feeling.  I didn’t even feel the need to go out.  I am nestled into the corner of my office with worship music streaming through my speakers and my dog laying on my lap.  I am drinking some earl grey tea and finding rest in Matthew 11:28-30 which says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Sisters, breathe deep the refreshment of the Holy Spirit.  He is so willing to fill us afresh with His spirit.  Whether we are exhausted or burdened, that promise is true.  These past two weeks I have found a supernatural quality to how He has brought me strength and sustenance to get through my days.

Have you been running through life busy and exhausted?  Do you need renewal and refreshment from the source?  Take a moment now to ask your Father for what you need.  I know for myself, I want to feel like I am capable of flourishing at this pace, not just merely surviving.  I realize that some sacrifices are going to need to be made for this to happen.  I must slow down even if it’s for a brief moment of margin with my Abba.

Isaiah 40:29-31 says, “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength,  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  Let us pray that we might soar! That we might fly!  This is our destiny.

Jesus~I am tired.  I feel weary in my bones and I need your supernatural strength.  Will you nourish me in your love and faithfulness?  Will you help me to climb this mountain that seems never ending?  I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I lay my weakness down at your feet and I am confident that when I am weak you are very strong.  I am safe in your arms.  I cast my cares upon you and I know that you are strong enough to take them from me.  Jesus I want to soar through this season.  I want to fly and flourish for your glory.  I know this is your will for me.  Please help me to place my times back into your capable hands and to make the necessary adjustments to be in alignment with you.  I thank you and I love you.  Amen!
