One of the questions we were asked that tuesday a week ago, was if we had some sort of support group because of the things we see and have to go through at the hospital, Robert Reid. While I immediately thought well no our support group is God, He sustains us and helps us bear the burden, I kept thinking about it a lot and the thought of a support group began to sound appealing. More so in my case because I've been seeing people whom I've come to cherish die in front of me since I started going to the hospitals, but I realized that always always the Lord has been my strength. Then today I read one of my favorite passages from Isaiah and realized what better therapy or cure than God's amazing Word He has left us, and His Holy Spirit who dwells in us to help us bear such burdens.
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 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."
Amen! What an amazing God the Lord is!
And when we think about this in light of the Gospel it is even more amazing, how blessed we are and how we are blessed daily by the Lord being so undeserving of such Grace!
Thank you Lord Jesus!
