My favorite verse is Isaiah 40:31... But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they will mount up with wings as eagles, they will run and not grow weary, walk and not faint.
Occasionally we soar, frequently we run but mostly, we just walk. Mundane, day after day kind of walking. Lack of sleep, errands, work, car repairs, taxes, rowdy boys. In the walking, sometimes we walk right into situations that take us by surprise. We would go around them if we had the choice, but instead God takes us right through them. Thankfully, we don't faint. We can't do it on our own. We are nothing and He is everything. He upholds us when we think we will surely faint, and find that we are able to keep on going.
Are you soaring, running or walking today? Whatever your mode of transportation, remember that our strength for the journey comes from the Lord.
