Isaiah 40:31 says “…but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” That is Jana’s favorite verse in the bible.
Today was one of those days with her when the waiting didn’t seem to be happening. There was no mounting up with wings, no running, no strength. What she had was dragging feet, a terrible feeling of “life sucks” and me nagging at her. “Get mad! You pick it up when you’re mad.”
But we made it through this day and we will make it through the next. Tomorrow is the sabbath. We will go to church. We will sing hymns and songs of praise. We will worship and experience the community of our church family.
Hopefully, we will pick up our feet and at least…walk.
We will wait upon the Lord and live in the promise of renewed strength.
