Isaiah 40:29-31 (NIV)

29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope 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 be faint.

Weariness, tiredness, sleepiness. I feel all of these at least once per day. If I am lucky, not before 9pm.

To get tired is to be human. We are told on multiple occasions in the gospels that Jesus grew tired and weary. We also see him full of zeal and life as he lives out His Father’s mission for him on the earth. Jesus knew well the truth of Isaiah 40:29-31.

Renewal of my entire being is mine as I hope in the Lord. I fix my hope in the Lord as I take time to pray and sit in silence in the presence of his Holy Spirit. I fix my hope in the Lord as I play some music of worship and join in the praise. I fix my hope in the Lord as I let his words written in scripture soak into every corner of my soul. I fix my hope in the Lord when I gather with the church and seek him on the earth.

“Lord, you are life and strength! I fix my hope in you today. Renew my weary body. Amen!”

    ..someone once alluded to my walk as bring like a flagstone path, each step having its own wisdom. Sometimes i feel more like a little hedgehog negotiating this path, where every flagstone step is more like a climb, and wisdom sometimes appearing like cryptic crossword clues…
