"As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; And you will be comforted in Jerusalem." Isaiah 66:13

Our God is not weak. He is strong and powerful. And, yet, he is also gentle and tender like a mother hen is to her chicks. He comforts his children like a mother comforts her young. He gathers us in His arms like a shepherd gathers his sheep, if we are willing.

So, when we, his followers and servants, grow weak and tired; when we are sad or feeling lonely or forgotten; or when we lack the physical or emotional strength to keep going because of hardship, persecution and trouble in our lives, he brings us comfort. He quiets our anxious hearts and fills us with his peace when we call on him in truth, trusting in his love and mercy. He will never leave us or forsake us. He knows what we are going through. He has not forgotten us. He will empower us and give us strength to endure if we trust him.

Weary of Heart

An Original Work / January 23, 2016
Based off Isaiah 40


You who bring the Good News,
Lift up your voice.
Do not fear. Shout it out:
“Here is your God!”
The sovereign Lord comes
With power and strength.
He gathers His tender lambs
In His arms.

Lift up your eyes and look:
“Who made all things?”
God, our creator knows
All about you.
Your cause is not
Disregarded by God.
He will not leave;
He’ll not abandon you.

When you are troubled
And weary of heart,
Trust the Lord with your life.
Do not despair.
He will empower you;
Strengthen within.
Soar on wings like eagles,
Walk and not faint.

Nick, the Lord had not given me a song to write since June of 2014, 1.5 years ago. Then, the other day I just felt prompted to turn on the keyboard. As my hands touched the keyboard and I began to play, this tune came to me, so I wrote it down. Then I asked the Lord if he had words for this tune, and he did. So, I wrote those down, too. Then, yesterday morning the Lord put in mind a song about singing praises to God, so I knew I was to record this song, so I did. All glory to God for what he did through me. He definitely used these words to encourage my heart.

Then, as I went looking for a picture to use for the PowerPoint presentation (video), I saw this picture of my mom when she was the age I am now, gathering my son in her arms, and I knew this was the picture I was to use. I have always loved this picture, which was taken by a family member. Then, I remembered how God was sometimes referred to in scripture as being like a mother comforting his children or like a mother chicken gathering her chicks under her wings, and so the picture fit with the idea of Jesus as a shepherd gathering his lambs in his arms.

Nick, thank you for your encouraging words. I am thankful to God that he used this song to comfort you in God's word.

I saw the similarity in the picture, but thought. Nah, it can't be her. Just never put two and two together that it was your mom!!!
Once again thank-you! Especially with sharing the story behind it.
