"The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the Earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable." Isaiah 40:28
I read this verse yesterday and the last part of it really struck me. His understanding is unsearchable.
This brings such hope and relief to a person (me) who constantly struggles with keeping her priorities straight and thinking she has to hold everything together herself.
While I'm a wife and a mother, my identity is not found in these roles. My identity is found in Christ and as long as I continue to search for myself within these roles, I will continue to come up empty.
It's not about chasing perfection; it's about chasing Christ. He understands my heart to a depth I never could and while it's littered with selfishness, it's also showered with hope and promise.
He understands my struggle and my longing. He never tires of my searching for Him, even when I read the map wrong sometimes.
