I have been reminded that regardless of what I am facing, God remains in complete control. He is not unaware. Situations that exhaust me, do not phase God.

In fact, if I continue to press hard into Him in the middle of my circumstances, he will provide strength and energy in those very moments. Not just strength to survive or to get by.... but fresh strength. Strength to soar above my situation. Strength to run to the very end.

Isaiah 40:28b-31 (Message)

"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."


  1. I'm feeling very overwhelmed this morning. Thanks for the reminder that I need to wait on God to receive strength. He is able. Indeed, He is not unaware. Amen and Amen. *;)

  2. hmmm....mind reading much?

    Thanks, I needed this very much today, and this week, and this month...

  3. A beautiful reminder Donnetta. The key, for me, is allowing Him to give what He longs to give. Too often I try to go it alone and get discouraged and worn out.

  4. I think he is trying to remind us all of this. Thanks for sharing. I know alot of us are facing some stormy weather. We just need to hold on a little tighter for a little longer. Things will get better for all of us. God Bless you!

  5. Love that message version. Really brings it out doesn't it? Praying for fresh strenth for you!


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
