Wayworn (Isaiah 40:27-31)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “wayworn.” It always amazes me that read the Bible I find that people following God often become tired and weary. In the Old Testament, the prophet Isaiah wrote about his strength coming from the Creator. So many people look to their own strength instead of from God above. One of my favorite songs has the following line:

“Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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.”
~Is. 40:30-31

I remember leaning on this verse for many years between high school and college. My question for you is: from where do you find your rest? Many times we just like to work until we cannot work anymore. God would have a more suitable plan for us if we only listen. My prayer for you is that as you become wayworn, or tired from the journey… take time towards the end of this year to rest, you also remember God's goodness and that he is the one who restores your faith and strength.

Praying for you,
