Kindred spirit please know that I hear you, through the wind and the rain.
This pain we know, not many have felt: the depth of the emptiness
and the breadth of the sorrow.
This dispair that comes wandering in like a vagabond or
blowing in like a storm.
How can we explain the struggle it is to remain rooted in the midst of a tsunami?
After the roar of the winds leaves in its wake pain, devastation and an exhaustion which seem eternal.
After the roar of the winds is silence...
a strong, loving, comforting voice says:(Isaiah 40:28-31)
28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Who are we to doubt His word?
