Isaiah 58:11

The Lord will guide you continually,
  giving you water when you are dry
  and restoring your strength.

I didn't realize I had posted this previously. But I guess it bears repeating. I am so encouraged by verses that point to the reality of being dry and not having it all together.  It helps me know it's ok to be less than perfect.  Still expecting The Lord.

The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength.
~ Isaiah 58:11a, NLT

I'm not sure if I've ever seen this verse before.  If I have, maybe it just hit me in a different way today.  I have felt peaceful for several months now.  Nothing has been solved in my relationship with God.  But, I have felt peace instead of anxiety about my need to fix it.  Maybe that is the water I needed after being so bone dry.  Perhaps restored strength is right around the corner?  I love that it says he will guide me continually.  I believe that.  Even though I haven't felt God as closely as I once did through the past few years, I've always felt he was still at the helm.  Guiding me through every season and dark path.  Continually.
