Encompassing difficulties for an extended period of time can exhaust you.
Crying out to the Lord~ pleading for release.
Begging for His presence, yearning for His gentle word.
How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?.....Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death.... (from psalm 13)
Heaviness fills my existence and my spirit weeps...
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah
He pours out His spirit on me. Gives me His right hand. Fills me. Loves me. Sends me.
And my spirit weeps with joy.
