Run and not grow weary

ememby_isaiah40_28-31

This was the unspoken theme verse from my year as an RA. One of my fellow RAs even wrote a song to go along with it that I can still sing (though not well, so don’t expect a video blog [vlog – aak] any time soon). Clearly we needed reminding that we could not do it all on our own and that if we only looked to God, He would give us the strength we needed to make it through.

Oh to feel like you are soaring with the eagles and to run and never tire. Someday.

A child

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

A prayer for those we love

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:16-19

Placing Trust

“But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

Direction

A person’s steps are directed by the Lord.
How then can anyone understand his own way?

In his heart a man plans his course,
but the Lord determines his steps.

Many are the plans in a man’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 20:24; 9:10; 19:21
