Well... lately I've been kinda tired. And I was trying to figure out why I was feeling tired and unmotivated. Was it cuz speech club is over? Was it because I had a slight cold? Was it because school is tiring? Though these things probly contributed to my 'general' tiredness, they weren't the main reasons.
When I thought about it, I realized the main reason was my lack of trust in God.
I'd been worrying about the future... like how I was going to be able to earn enough money to support a family; or pay for a house; or what job or business would bring in the most income; or if I wanted to become a professional web designer how would I do it. And when you start worrying about the future like that, things start to seem overwhelming.
I was worrying about things that I can't really control and started to feel kinda hopeless. So, Isaiah 40 came to mind about how God is mighty and Sovereign and worthy of our faith and trust.
"28 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.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 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."
I urge you to read the whole chapter of Isaiah 40. It is soo good! You can read the whole thing at BibleGateway.com.
