Youths may faint and grow weary,
and young men stumble and fall,
but those who trust 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 faint.
I don't know about you, but I feel like I've been running weary all summer long. It started in May when I started writing a new novel. By the end of June I had finished the first draft of my 94,000 word book.
Then we went right into helping my in-laws prepare to move to a senior community. Each weekend we've been traveling two hours one way to help downsize and get things ready for the move. It's been exhausting.
In the midst of all the weariness, I'm so thankful that I can always turn to God to renew my strength. I also love the promises from Psalm 54:4.
"God is my helper;
the Lord is the sustainer of my life."
When's the last time you went to the Lord to renew your strength?
