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 40:31 This is a favorite verse of mine. I have always focused on the renewing strength part, wanting to soar and run and never be faint. But lately I have been thinking more about the hoping part, often translated as waiting. Patience is an elusive virtue, but God has His own timeline. So I wait and trust, believing His word from this verse that the rewards will be worthwhile.
