“…those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.” (Isaiah 40: 31, Amplified Bible)
There is gentle power in the pause. When you feel burdened mentally or physically, wearied and depleted, take it as an opportunity to recharge and refill in a way that will do more than just get you through. The deep breaths of divine power regenerate us in our moments and carry us beyond our expectations.
Don’t allow the call to hopelessness and helplessness drag you down into more apathy and weakness. Take these occasions to look to God, to Spirit, to Truth and Love, as your sufficient and bottomless supply and sustenance. As we let our lives rest in the power of God’s Love, not only do we gain energy for our day, we begin to see things like we never have before. Joy and love appear like sunlight on our new and shiny wings, spread wide for soaring.
God is always giving us Life generously and lovingly. Let Him feed you with His comforting care and hold your hand for the daily journey. He companions us with natural power, enthusiasm, and strength. His Love and Life never get drained or discouraged. He is always with us as we walk, run, fly fearlessly, freely, and naturally in the sunlight of promises and peace.
