Sunday Selah

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
Isaiah 40:31

It never ceases to amaze me, how the Word speaks to this time and this place.
The Living Word.

For a document composed and recorded through antiquity, it is miraculous how the prose and wisdom speaks into my 21st century day.

There were verses that carried us yesterday during our race. A friend had made a poster for JT's front door with the verse Isaiah 40:31.

And it was those words JT repeated as we began a long climb up a steep hill deep into the race.


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


Words from a prophet in an obscure land. Words written in a time when our organized running events of this century would have seemed a strange and inexplicable sight.

Words that still resound today when two moms struggle up a hill at the end of a long run, knees creaking, brows sweaty, friendship deepened.

The Word.

It still speaks.

Even in today. Even into our little efforts and interests and experiences.

May it speak to you today.

Selah.
