Fresh Strength

 

'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'
- Isaiah 40 {The Message}.

    That was just great to see Melanie enjoying what I used to do all of my growing-up days!!!! Of course, I was not allowed to wear shorts or slacks!!!! And, of course, that is one of my favorite verses - one that I even sing along with!!!

  10. I always love the way the Message Bible says things, although I must admit, I thought this was penned by you, Linda. :) It really reminds me of a recent practice I've been working on--finding verses that explain aspects of God's character or describe who He is and what He does. This fits nicely in that list! Thanks so much for the inspiration, sweet friend.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
