Isaiah 40:31 says this..
"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."
I love the very first part of that verse it says IN the Lord. That strength we need to push through this season is found IN His word. Those pages are a direct path to the heart of God. It is our direction, answers and healing. It brings comfort; it teaches us and ultimately shows us that our struggles and the battles of this life will one day be over. How exciting to know the end of the story and Christmas is where it all began for you and me. This season is an opportunity for those around you to see you draw from the very reason why we celebrate. Don’t let gifts, annoying family members and things you CANNOT control keep you from experiencing your Creator like ever before. He wants you exactly where you are today. Rest in Him. Pull Strength from Him. Seek Him. YOUR rescuer is on the way.
He brought me out into a spacious place; He RESCUED me because He DELIGHTED IN ME.
