** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk,

Isaiah 40:31

As I was searching for just the right scripture for this week's Word-Filled Wednesday, I came upon this scripture in Isaiah. I have read it countless times in my life but not recently. Today, it nearly jolted me out of my chair.

I have been trying and trying to figure out what 'I' can do to feel better, what 'I' can do to be well again. I've been trying to figure out which direction to go from here, which new doctor would be right to see, what new medications I should consider, which current meds I should stop, how I'm going to lose ALL this weight I've gained and so on.
During all this time, I've grown more and more depressed and sad. Because of this, my quiet time and prayer time have become virtually non-existent and I've felt distant from the Lord.

Doing the Word-Filled Wednesdays has helped me to get back into God's Word and I'm really thankful for that. Today's scripture made me remember that, often, I just have to WAIT upon Him when I'm in need. Sometimes that is SO incredibly hard to do! But, it is ALWAYS worth it. I know that in His time, He can help me to be strong again, to walk again.....and to not pass out anymore.

What a GLORIOUS DAY that will be!

Please be sure to check out my PAY IT FORWARD GIVE-AWAY! I'd love for you to be a part of it!

The purpose of Word-Filled Wednesday is to share God's word (no famous quotes or other literature, only the beautiful Word of our Heavenly Father) through scripture and pictures. If you would like to participate in Word-Filled Wednesday, please join Lori over at her blog and link up.

That is a perfect piece of scripture. I know that your medical issues are quite serious and while I can only imagine how tough it must be for you, I do understand a little. I suffer from diabetes and have been having some hard times with it of late. I, too, have been feeling down and depressed and your post has reminded me that I should have a bit more faith.

Sometimes, what am I saying... All the time I have a hard time just letting it go (whatever it is) and putting it in his hands. I am always trying so hard to figure this out and run that. That I don't let him be my Savior. I need to remember that more often. I think we all do.

I've used this same scripture in my blogs also... it's just a great scripture. What really hit me the day that the Lord led me to it, was that I was constantly blacking out every time I tried to do anything. Being stuck in a chair day in and day out is so very depressing. But I read it and I read it again, and it says They that wait upon the Lord shall RENEW THEIR STRENGTH, they shall RUN and NOT GROW WEARY. and they shall WALK and NOT FAINT!!! God seemed to be telling me to wait, trust in Him, and all the things I was saddened about, well He'd work it out! It's a scripture I constantly keep in mind now on those days when I stumble and fall or get weak and dizzy... My God is an Almighty Everlasting and True God! He will make a way... just gotta wait upon the Lord :) Thanks for sharing it again!
