A Mothers Prayer: Isaiah 40:28-31


You promised.
I hold You to your Word,
though I tremble and doubt
before all 
I have heard and seen.

Your Holy Spirit sings songs to my soul…
 Do you not know? 
   Have you not heard? 
The LORD is the everlasting God, 
   the Creator of the ends of the earth.

as quickly as the sun does rise,
I see my child growing up before 
my eyes…

I fear instead of trust, based on what these eyes do see-
Instead I ask to be anchored,
to live and move in you joyfully. 

All things-
You said.
All things, I believe.

He will not grow tired or weary, 
   and his understanding no one can fathom. 

Lord, I have seen and heard of your faithfulness,
how you lead each 
one by one
to the light, 
out of darkness….
into that bright, morning sun. 

Your mercy
 I know is new each and every day.
Your beauty,
and splendor
in nature displayed. 

Daily, reminding me.

Day in and day out, awaiting your hand,
as you gently unfold your intricate plan.
Will you recognize me as I 
approach your Promised Land?

Weary from fighting, 
yet drawn by your grace.
Walking by faith,
I long to look upon your face.

He gives strength to the weary 
   and increases the power of the weak.

I will remain true,
what else would I do?
Where would I go?
If my hope would not alone 
be anchored in you.
But it is.

By faith.

Even youths grow tired and weary, 
   and young men stumble and fall; 
but those who hope in the LORD 
   will renew their strength. 

Wings, Lord, I ask for;
Hinds feet for me,
to soar, 
and climb to heights 
you say are my reality.
Seated with You, 
forever to be. 
Oh, I ask you to let me soar-
with those wings 

They will soar on wings like eagles; 
   they will run and not grow weary, 
   they will walk and not be faint.

  1. This came along right on time. You have NO idea. But you soon will! ;)Thanks for this post. Like a healing, soothing balm it is (she said in her best Yoda voice).At His feet,Pam


  2. Another of my sons went off to college today. The Lord really led me to your blog, because reading this today has helped heal a mothers heart – if even for a time. It doesn't seem to matter how many of them fly the nest, it is always like the first time.
