"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:29-31
This was one of the verses from my Jesus Calling devotion for the day (if you are in need of a good one - get this one! My Mom gave it to me almost 2 years ago and I am always in awe of how much it speaks to exactly what I am facing each day) and I just felt like sharing it with you. I love the imagery this verse gives me. The power and grace of a soaring eagle, the strength and endurance of a runner running a race - all fueled by our hope in the Lord and the new life He gives us.
Where ever you're at today, don't give up, don't stop running the race and fighting the good fight. Start every day with dependence on Him, because our own strength can only carry us so far. And don't be afraid of that cliff you feel like you might be jumping off, it could just be God nudging you to teach you how to soar.
