Sometimes we wake up after a long nights and the problems of yesterday cloud the joy of the morning. Today, we need to be infused with energy to make it through the remainder of the day and week. God, has a plan for our life says Jeremiah, a plan for a hope and a future, further the writer says,”faint not”, “don’t get weary in good doing”. We have to keep pushing, take rest in knowing that God will replenish your spirit and body. Replenish us with a joy and a energy that cannot be taken away. Hope is not always an easy tenet, but it’s essential to survival. A story is told of a elderly lady that walked several miles with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., when asked by her fellow marchers if she was tired, she responded by saying, “my feet are tired, but my spirit is strong”. Your body maybe tired, but your spirit is renewed everday.
The poet, Ruyard Kipling, “If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your thier turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!” So today, let us squeeze every bit of energy we have to make it through today. Let’s not worry about tommorow, the songwriter says, “I dont worry about tommorow becuase I know who hold my hand, God’s eye is on the Sparrow and I know he watches over me”. Let us pause, breath. Breath in peace, joy and strength and breath out frustration, hurt and pain.
Lord, I may be tired but, I will hold on until you renew my strength.
