Running and Walking

Don’t you know? Haven’t you heard? 
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the creator of the ends of the earth.
He doesn’t grow tired or weary. 
His understanding is beyond human reach,
giving power to the tired 
and reviving the exhausted.
Youths will become tired and weary,
young men will certainly stumble;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength;
they will fly up on wings like eagles;
they will run and not be tired;
they will walk and not faint.
Is 40
This is one of my favorite Scriptures.
Those who hope in the Lord WILL renew their strength.
I love that there is a promise of running and not growing weary.
I have been running for a lot of years, 
training runs, 10Ks, marathon.
It is possible not to be tired.
But my favorite of all these promises is:
They will walk and not faint.
Walking is so daily.
I do not run every day.
I walk every single day, all day long.
There are days that have weariness stamped all over them.
But, God promises that I can walk and not faint.
Those are the kinds of promises that give me hope.
Those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
LOVE His promise of 
I receive it all.
