Do you need fresh strength?

Isaiah 40:28-31 - "Don't you know anything? Haven't you been listening? God doesn't come and go. God lasts. He's Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out.  He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts.  For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall.  But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind."

Man, this Scripture is like pure life inside of me this morning.  The last six months, especially the last month, have been trying beyond what I thought I could bear.  But I can bear it.  I can more than bear it.  I can face my calling with God-given energy.  I don't know what I would do without God's Word; especially when my own thoughts begin to lose perspective.  God is so good and patient and loving.  Wow.
