I had lost all my strength
Found myself shaken and alone
It was then that you called to me. Lifted me. Held me.
Brought me back to home
Life throws us many curveballs, whether they are big or small, positive or negative, life-changing or ordinary. With many curveballs that are thrown at us, we can become very tired and weary of certain situations that may stress us out even more. In fact, it is common for us to isolate ourselves and avoid seeking any form of advice or sustenance that will lift us up. Perhaps this is due to our self-pride, that we don’t need anyone to help us and that we are intelligent enough to get through a situation by ourselves. However, we cannot keep believing that we can do it alone. Instead, during these times of fatigue and pressure, we must come forward to our ultimate Father, the Lord God. Isaiah 40:31 states:
“Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.”
During this afternoon’s Noon Day Prayer service, AUHS Founder Dr. Kim Dang-Johnson expressed that when we solely rely on ourselves to get out of a rut, we are going to continue to keep falling into holes that we cannot get out of. The paths that we take and choose to go to will only be filled with holes along the way if we keep relying on ourselves, and not on God. God is the answer to our prayers, our requests, and our everything. Through Him, we will rise up like eagles preparing to fly.
May God Bless You All ~
