30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 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.
The Bible speaks of casting all your cares upon the Lord. I have found through life somethings change and it can be very hard. Our minds try to figure things out and even the wonder of the outcome is real. The verses above speak of youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. Have you ever found your life needing to renew your strength in the Lord? I certainly have been in places where I was just tired. Yet, if I trusted the Lord I could soar on wings like eagles. My faith was uplifted by my own thoughts and trust in the Lord.
GOD IS ABLE ~
Life changes and we see how God continues to be there for us
I remember as a kid wanting life to be better when I grew up. I would hear a lot of the time this, "No we don't have the money". Maybe it was a certain box of cereal or just a small toy, but I heard no more than yes in my life. I heard kids tease me a lot and I would walk home alone crying from grade school. That little kid that sits alone at a playground because nobody wants to play with them was me. I think there have always been bullies in life and I became determined to make a difference when I grew up. I didn't think about making a difference as a kid, it was always when I grow up I will teach people to be kind to others.
One day I heard about Jesus who gave the water living water. What? What we living water anyway and how does this affect my life. Read this:
John 4:10-14 New International Version (NIV)10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Jesus wasn't just saying take a drink of water, but giving her an opportunity to change her life forever. Just like he does each of us. We have choices to live this life with him and in peace. A new way of thinking and treating others. So many people are angry in this big world and we can make a difference by showing his love to others. He cares for you and wants the best for you. So some decisions were wrong and you have another chance now. Go ahead and trust him through everything. I have seen miracles in my life. I have people who call me to pray and I count that an honor. I know that prayer works and it certainly has changed my life.
In life, we can grow into a better person or bitter! I choose better, how about you? Somethings are very hard and I am thankful that I have people in my life that care about me too. I care about you (readers of my blog) and I know that God brought you to this page. A new day is here and he able to handle it for you, your family and prayers. My prayers continue and Keep telling yourself that GOD IS ABLE because he truly is to answer your prayers.
Purpose this a good day!
