Co-founder of Desiring God, Jon Bloom:
always a good one on repeat: I will rise…
…so when the weary who never feel like they are enough, Lord,
the exhausted women, the tired mothers, the burnt-out men,
when they look in the mirrors at the end of the day & are about at the end of their ropes,
let them just get to the beginning of You & hear:
You have enough of Him & courage to do this hard thing. You have enough of Him & strength to not give up. You have enough of Him & love to keep on giving. You have enough of Him & peace to know that you are carried.You have enough of Him to rest. You have enough of Him — and He is enough. You are enough — because the great I AM is in you & with you & for you. He is enough — that is enough.
Believe it: The greatest act of courage is to simply keep facing one direction when everything in you wants to turn and run.
Stand your shaky, holy ground.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
