But those who wait for the LORD will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint.
You are not alone in this wide universe. Praise God!
Though you’ve grown and the comfort of a parental hand has weakened, you are not on your own. You’re not. God IS there.
Praise Him! He is more knowing of your childhood memoirs, your addictions, your secrets, than any counselor.
He is more able to heal your disorders, your heart break, your aging body, your bouts with sickness, your pains, than any doctor.
He is more capable of pulling you from your pile of ruin and surrounding you with loving kindness, than any friend.
He knows what you truly desire and what you truly need; and He has good things, genuinely satisfying things wrapped up and stored away, waiting for the right time to deliver.
Praise God! Believe that He cares for you now and will care for your future, and the wrinkle will disappear from your forehead, the stress will dissipate from your body, the heaviness will lift from your heart.
The grouch in you will go. That childish comfort that use to tuck you in at night, will return, peace, hope, your youth, free, like an eagle.
