Dear Faithful People,
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
God 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 40:28-31 NIV)
This passage from Isaiah has been popping up in my life repeatedly this week which is usually a sign that I need to listen and pay attention. I love watching eagles soar high in the sky, floating on the currents in the air, watching for prey, or just enjoying the day. What brings you hope and strength in these verses? For me this week, it is the idea that it is OK to be weary because our God, who is present with us every moment giving us what we need, is the everlasting God and has unlimited resources! We are not alone in whatever we are facing. And that gives me hope. The stress of this pandemic is real. We have lost much; our way of living each day has been altered. But we have gained things too. As it stretches on into the unknown future, my prayer is that you can find strength, peace, and joy in each day. Hang in there!
