“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.” Isaiah 40:31
Most people have best practices or rituals they do when they need to get back to themselves after a stressful or weary season. Some meditate while others exercise or seclude themselves for a few hours or rest. This verse is very clear that hope in the Lord is essential to renewing your strength (and not just physical strength). If we are going to show up emotionally for those we love, our strength must be renewed daily. We can only get that from the Lord. So no matter what your “go-to” practices may be, I encourage you to ensure that you are finding your hope in the Lord and not in yourself or any earthly thing.
It is my prayer for you (& myself) today that we place our hope in the Lord and soar in every area of life.
