“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
Have you ever felt weary? I not just talking about tired but fatigue that cannot be described and goes beyond being physically tired. I remember several weeks ago, I was physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually weary. I was working a lot and the impact of COVID-19 and Systemic Racism had overwhelmed me. Social media did not bring me any joy since there was so much disagreement and division around the clock. I was sitting on my couch and realized that I was weary. I finally said it aloud and asked God for help. I was so relieved. In that moment. I felt a shift when I surrendered to God.
Right now, we are living in an unprecedented and unpredictable moment. There is so much that can weigh on our souls. I want to encourage all of us to look to God. Only God can not only cure our weariness but he can also help us navigate our daily lives if we allow him. God loves us enough that we can be honest with him. He does not judge us because of our questions and authenticity. In today’s scripture, we are reminded that our hope should be placed in God. When we place our hope in God, he will renew us. This is a promise. We do not have to walk out life alone. We are called to trust and hope in God. God’s promises for us cannot be disputed.
Let us decide to surrender to God and be honest with him. Wherever you are today, cry out to God. God is available to us 24 hours a day and seven days a week. We will never get a busy signal or dismissed by God. So, whether it is first thing in the morning or late at night, God is available to you. My prayer is that we would turn to God even on our most difficult day. God loves us and will never judge or forsake us. May God bless you today and always! Matthew 11:28-30 says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
