Psalm 73:26 My health may fail, and my spirits may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.
I have Lupus so this was a very important verse to me... I really thought about it... as always I prayed for understanding of this verse... but wanted extra much to understand!!... and here is what God is telling me about this verse... "I am with you!!... your heart is so what is important to me... you may be sick and your may feel to tired to go on... but that doesn't meant I have left you... your heart belongs to me and I am with you always!"... so even when you are tired... and sick ... and sick of being tired, God is with you and he is taking care of the very most important part of you... God is taking care of your heart... so don't give up!!... let Gods love shine through your pain.... and if you are sick and you are tired... if your spirit is weak... remember to have joy in what God has given you!!... just yesterday I was feeling really weary from my Lupus flair... it can make me feel rather useless... but I knew I needed rest to feel better... to get better from my flair... and the useless feeling was very counter productive as far as rest was concerned... so I thought ok Jeannie, be happy with what God has given you... and God has put me in a place in my life where I can rest when I need to... so I decided to be happy... to have joy... and to lay down and rest and enjoy my rest.. to relish a day or two or three of being all snuggled in... I decided to be thankful for where I am... trusting that God has my heart and that is what mattered... my spirit grew stronger... and the better my spirit is the stronger my body is... I will now always think when I am sick.. or when my spirit is weak... its ok Gods got my heart.
