I know that you know what it is like to have your flesh and heart fail. I do. I have felt that this week even. Frustration over the pain and limitations of an injury, tiredness from interrupted sleep, overwhelm at all that I need to get done, the heartbreak of walking through anxiety with my daughter all added up this week. I hit a low point and wanted to curl up and ignore life for a while.
And then this verse came up. The whole chapter has some gems but this spoke right to where I am at. I am human. I will have times when I am brought low. What doesn't change is the strength of my heart- my God. Instead of curling up and ignoring life, I curled up in the arms of my Father God. I declare that He is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. I can rest in that. I can stop striving and trying to make everything happen on my own.
Where does the strength of your heart come from? Have you allowed God to be that for you?
