Isaiah 40:29-31 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.
Here we are, one month into 2017. How are you doing with those New Year’s resolutions you made just a few weeks ago?
For me personally, I am not doing as well as I had hoped. On paper it looked like the perfect plan. But, in reality I overestimated my ability to add new tasks into my daily and weekly schedule. So, I am revisiting those resolutions and praying over the importance of each new task. I am setting priorities to complete the important and deleting a few of the resolutions that were not as aligned with my priorities. How about you? Have your new resolutions fallen seamlessly into your schedule, or after a month are you feeling like I was – overwhelmed with the obligation to complete everything on my 2017 “to do” list? Talk to Jesus about your priorities and realistic tasks for the next 11 months.
With God’s help, we can soar on the wings of eagles in 2017! He will give us the strength to finish the race.
