God Does Not Tire

Tired and Weary

No doubt about it, this was a tense and anxious week;  election, coronavirus spiking across the world and in our towns, hospitals nearing capacity, family who are sick (though not with Covid), and the constant struggle of life balance.  I, like the rest of our nation, am weary, tired, and in need rest.
And so  it came as  a  welcomed relief to experience our first significant rainfall (for our area)  in seven months!  It is after the rain and in the quiet of the morn,  I  feel  peacefulness all around.  The songbirds are singing while fluttering about and playing in the remnants of a puddle. The air is crisp,  my breath visable  as  I stood  in the midst of my garden,  I sense  God’s restorative hand at work. The feeling of tranquility makes me linger.
God Never Tires

I recall Isaiah 41:28 “God never grows weary or tired”.  I smile and realized that when I change my perspective and focus my thoughts towards the Lord, not only can I  witness the beauty of His creation  but  my weariness  has lifted.  Isaiah 41: 31, “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength. They will mount with wings like eagles; they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. ”

Designed for a Purpose

Scary Decorations?
Halloween is almost here and decorations are displayed in stores and in our neighborhood. Of all the decorations the skeleton is  meant to scare and  frighten. This  may sound crazy, but  when I see the skeleton I  think of how each bone works together.  The skeleton has  purpose. If a  bone was by itself, it is just a bone;  yet when joined  together the bones form an important framework for our bodies. 
The Challenge
The next time you see a skeleton decoration  I challenge you to look upon the decorations to view the skeleton as a   beautfiul important piece of God’s handiwork.  The bones, like the  muscles, organs, and skin  are all important and are designed to work together. 
God’s Design
God designed each one of us for a purpose, uniquely made, but with a similar design.  The design is human, but our mind and souls are unique.  As we journey through life our capabilities  change over time, but God ensures that whatever station we are in life, we are useful.  Afterall we are designed by the greatest creator of all.
