The Lord Gives Strength

27 You people of Israel, say,
“God pays no attention to us!
    He doesn’t care if we
    are treated unjustly.”

But how can you say that?
28 Don’t you know?
    Haven’t you heard?
The Lord is the eternal God,
    Creator of the earth.
He never gets weary or tired;
his wisdom cannot be measured.

29 The Lord gives strength
    to those who are weary.
30 Even young people get tired,
    then stumble and fall.
31 But those who trust the Lord
    will find new strength.
They will be strong like eagles
    soaring upward on wings;
they will walk and run
    without getting tired.

The Lord Controls Human Events

41 Be silent and listen,
    every island in the sea.
Have courage and come near,
    every one of you nations.
Let’s settle this matter!

By Kevin Dooley

No one will see,
no one will know,
I can get away with this

God knows,
God sees,
God is watching over those
that you are cheating,
mistreating,
ignoring,
marginalizing.

So weary,
so tired,
exhausted by life.
Tripping,
falling,
no strength to go on.
How can I continue to put one foot in front of the other?
How will I ever finish this task?
How will I have the strength to rise up?
Where will my next meal come from?
Where can I get help?
Who cares?

God knows,
God sees,
God cares.
He knows who you are,
where you are,
how you are.
He sees your struggles,
feels your pain.

His strength will carry you.

He will raise you up,
when you have no strength
to do so for yourself.

Lift me up
Lord,
I pray.
May I soar on your wings,
fly in your strength,
walk in your power

However weary we come, however we are feeling, we come to God, he lifts us, he carries us, he journeys with us.

You Raise Me Up
