Rising Joy, by Vicki Matheny
But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired. Isaiah 40.31
Do you ever get tired? If you are like the common person, you do. How do you recharge or realign yourself? Some might take a vacation. If you cannot get away, you might read a book, watch a movie, or soak in a warm tub. These things might provide temporary relief, but for the one who is mentally tired, they are like bandaids.
When you have the Lord as your lifeline, you can be renewed daily. The daily practice of communing with him through his word has the power to renew your spirit and recharge your batteries, 2 Corinthians 4.16. You can cast all of your anxieties on him in prayer because he cares about you, 1 Peter 5.7.
Find your strength in him. Soar like the eagle!
