How Many Miles?

I read a quote today that said, "there is no telling how many miles you will have to run while chasing a dream". How appropriate! I have to admit for the first time I really don't feel like running the race anymore.

I. am. tired. of. running.

Thankfully the Lord more specifically gave me Isaiah 40. Lord, help me to trust and understand.

Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars?
He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name.
Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.
O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?
O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?
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.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:26-31

Hey girl! Been thinking about you and checking in by remote from a little village high in the Shenandoah Mts. :)

Hang in there. And just remember: even marathon runners sometimes have to slow down and walk once in a while!

Still praying. . .
