Strength Through Hard Times – Day 5

“It’s ok to feel tired and worn down. Just know that our strength and power is restored through our relationship with El Olam, the Everlasting God.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Isaiah 40:31 (NLT) – “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.”

“That’s what I’m talking about, Day 5 of our 7-day spiritual workout and it’s Friday! Our strength conditioning scripture this morning reminds us that it’s normal to feel weary when it seems like we are getting hit from all angles and we have the perception that we’re all alone. During those times let’s go back to the prophet Isaiah’s reminder to the folks that had been in exile for some 70 years. He reminded them that we serve a God who has everlasting energy and He is always with us. Yesterday we worked out to build our strength by not leaning on our own understanding and today our spiritual conditioning coach is telling us that during hard times we have to remain faithful and just don’t quit because we are not alone. We might FEEL weak, weary, and all alone but God IS right there with is. We received on Day 1 of our workout that the worriedness and self-pity are what makes us weak. We have to stop running around like we’re crazy trying to figure out the ‘Why me’ and just keep still! Let’s trust that El Olam will continue to be our everlasting source of energy when we feel its over and we just can’t go on. WE GOT TO HANG IN THERE!- #ToddCPittman
