Tiredness and finding strength in God

I remembered yesterday that Eagles soar but they don’t flap. Soaring involves harnessing and relying on the power of the wind but flapping would use up all of their energy so they would crash and burn.

God says that if they trust in him that those who are tired ‘Will soar high on wings like eagles’ I wanted to write something about this today but then I realized I already had so here its is 🙂

So remember today, it’s time to soar but not flap!

Honest about my faith

tiredI don’t know if it’s to do with the time of the year or some other reason, but lots of people who I know feel really tired. I know several people who are dreading Christmas and all the preparation it can involve.

Are you tired? Do you feel overloaded? If that is how you feel, then Isaiah 40 has some helpful words.

28 Have you never heard?
    Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
    No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak
    and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
    and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
    They will soar high on wings like eagles.

    Excellent reminder to work in God’s power, not our own.
