To renew your strength

To renew your strength


Lifting our eyes to Christ: Monday Scripture

“To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel, “My way is hidden from the Lord; my cause is disregarded by my God”?

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 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 40:25-31

Is your load too heavy today? Are you wondering where you’ll find the strength for all that lies ahead?

There is strength for the weary and power for the weak.

Our hope is in the Lord.

Nothing is too much for Him.

Whether you’re soaring, running, or walking, He’s got you.

Be renewed in Him, friend.

We’re so grateful our ways aren’t hidden from you, Lord. You see, you care, you empower. You are mighty, wise, and good. We place our trust in you today, thankful for the strength you promise. Amen.

Praying your hearts are full of gratitude for our God above all else this week!




When your soul is parched

When your soul is parched

Have you ever tried to quench a desperate water-thirst with milk, Coke, or coffee?

No matter how great our favorite beverages may be, nothing can take the place of water — that life-sustaining liquid that makes up most of our bodies… most of our planet.

Without it, we die.

How about your soul thirst?

When you’re parched, where do you run?

To temporary distractions? To your mate? Your friends? Who bears the weight of your expectations of renewal?

Join me at The Better Mom today, where I tell the story of my soul’s restoration.
