But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired.—Isa 40:31 NET
Lord, what a change within us one short hour Spent in Thy presence will prevail to make! What heavy burdens from our bosoms take! What parched grounds refresh as with a shower! We kneel and all around us seems to lower. We rise and all the distant and the near Stand forth in sunny outline, brave and clear. We kneel how weak: we rise how full of power. Why, therefore, should we do ourselves this wrong Or others that we are not always strong; That we are ever overborne with care; That we should ever weak or heartless be, Anxious or troubled, while with us is prayer, And joy and strength and courage are with Thee? — Archbishop Trench.
