I feel like Moses

Exodus 17:9-13
Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.”
So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword

I feel like Moses.

I choked back tears reading this passage to Jamison, it feels so personal. 
I can’t express the feeling of being loved by the body of Christ all over the world. In the last month I’ve had periods of just feeling too tired. Too tired to try and stand up again after surgery, Too tired for another discouraging Dr, tired of pushing to find answers, too tired to hold my hands up. But then I’d get another text, another message another beautiful card in the mail and more prayers on my behalf than I can comprehend, so many people taking on my work as their own, and loving on my kids, God has been SO faithful, through his people, just when I feel too drained and a sense of apathy starts creeping in... One of His soldiers comes to battle for me. Someone comes along side me and puts their shoulder under mine to hold me up and strengthen me in my faith. My hands are held high in worship to the King of kings because He is HOLY and worthy of praise. 

I am strengthened through my brothers and sisters
