31 But those who trust the Lord
will find new strength.
They will be strong like eagles
soaring upward on wings;
they will walk and run
without getting tired.
It’s so easy to get caught up in our everyday struggles and forget that this strength is available to us. I know I do sometimes.
Things will be going along just fine and then, boom. Out of the blue, troubles arise. I don’t know about anyone else out there but sometimes I realize right at those moments that when it had been smooth sailing for a while, perhaps I wasn’t as close to God as I should have been.
More specifically, when tough times come my way, I’m reminded that I need to trust God more.
So, why trust God? Well, I don’t think I need to tell you that if you place your trust solely in other people or things here on Earth, there is a lot of disappointment waiting down that path.
We’re all human beings and no one is perfect. People will disappoint you. (We’ll disappoint others, too.) Plans won’t go the way you intended. Seemingly good things can go bad. Heartache is right around the corner.
But, strength is always there for us and it comes by trusting that God is in control and that He has a good plan for our lives.
Easier said than done? Absolutely! But today I’m reminding myself of that strength, and reminding myself where I need to place my trust.
Perhaps someone else out there needs this reminder, too. May you find new strength today.
Have a good day.
