"When you send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face
of the ground."  ~Psalm 104:30

We need not yield to weariness of the spirit.  At times, the world's cares
and distractions can intrude and the spirit can become weak.  At times like
this, we can carry on and soon the spirit will become strong again.  God's
spirit is always with us, to replenish and renew. None of us has ever
sincerely sought God's help in vain.  Physical weariness and exhaustion make
a time of rest and communion with God more necessary. When we are overcome
by temporary conditions which we cannot control, we can keep quiet and wait
for the power of the spirit to flow back.

I pray that I may not speak or act in the midst of emotional upheaval. I
pray that I may wait until the tempest is past.
