God Lasts!

Well, today has been the 2nd of 2 very very long days. While I am EXTREMELY grateful to have a job (and a good, rewarding, interesting one at that), I am very exhausted.

The best news of the day is The Lord is able. God lasts. Even when I can't, He can.

This is a passage from The Message I am memorizing right now...I memorized this in the KJV or NIV growing up and I love how Eugene Peterson paraphrases:

"God doesn't come and go. God lasts. He's Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch His breath. And He knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to drop outs. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles. They run and don't get tired. They walk and don't lag behind."--Is 40:28-31

"His strength is perfect when our strength is gone/He'll carry us when we can't carry on/raised in His power, the weak become strong/His strength is perfect/His strength is perfect"--(Steven Curtis Chapman)

Thank you, Lord, for lasting!
