The Power is Out


Isaiah 63:15-66:24
“My chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labor in vain” Isaiah 65:22-23
There is so much I would love to tell you today. So much that I have prepared to tell you today, except my power just went out. And I’ve been texting with several other people from all over Sheridan and found out that it looks like the entire town of Sheridan is out of power. So who knows when I’ll be getting my power back, which means I need to keep this brief.
I’ve got to be honest, I have really been struggling today. I’m not exactly sure with what or why but I know that I’ve been struggling and it has been hard. This afternoon I have found solace in the Word of God like only the Word of God can give us solace. This verse gave me hope. I feel like I’m on the edge of something new and many changes, and changes are hard. So perhaps that is what I’ve been struggling with today. I find hope in this verse of knowing that the last 4 years of work have *not* been in vain.
Eccesiastes 3:12-13 says,  ” I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil this is God’s gift to man.”
For the past 2 hours I have been searching the Scriptures, I have been translating from the original Greek to English and I have enjoyed every minute of it. And even if none of it ends up on the page, I know that it was all still worth it because I enjoyed it. It was time with the Lord. It was time with you, even though you didn’t know it.
I love you all so desperately, even though I’ve never seen you. Speaking the truth into your lives means everything to me. You are the work of my hands and I pray that God blesses you abundantly. You are so precious to him, you have no idea how much. He spends hours every day talking to me about how much He loves you. I pray that you can feel His love through these words, His words.
Life can get so chaotic, it can be so crazy, things just happen that you weren’t expecting, like your power goes out before you’ve ever had a chance to type 1 word for today’s post. So then you’re stuck using your phone instead because it’s the only thing that still has battery left. But where there is a will there is a way. Things may seem hopeless, but they’re not. There is always hope, because there’s always Jesus.
I love you my friends. I pray you have a blessed day in the Lord, what’s left of it anyway.
