Isaiah 40:30-31

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.

These two verses remind me of several things:

First, it is okay to get tired.

Second, it is okay to feel weary.

Third, when we stumble or fall, we shouldn’t feel as if this unacceptable in God’s eyes.  He understands that sometimes in life these things happen.

Fourth, in order to regain our strength and our footing, we must put our hope in the Lord.

And finally, when we do, we will find ourselves doing one of three things:





We all love the days when we are soaring.  We find ourselves above our problems being lifted to a place where things are peaceful and the view is amazing.

And then there will be days when we are able to run.  These are great days too.  We don’t grow weary…we just keep pressing on remembering the prize.

But sometimes, life will cause us to only be able to walk.  At these times, we must remember that at least God promises that we will not faint.  We must keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Where are you in life right now?

Soaring, running, or walking?

I am definitely in a “walking” time.

Trusting God to help me as I move closer to Him in a step by step journey.

Praying for you as you renew your strength today by putting your hope in Him,
