Most days I’m pretty upbeat about things, even during the Corona Age, but on certain days I find that I have to avoid any and all kinds of news in order to stay optimistic. Today is one of those days. I’m sick of hearing about politics. I’m tired of hearing about social problems. And I’m weary about the staggering numbers from corona.
As a casual runner, normally I would have a 5k race to look forward to and train for and keep my mind off of things that are scary, but that’s yet another problem with the Corona Age – – there are no races! My wife can run virtual races and be content, but I need a crowd of people competing all at the same time. I need to try and catch someone before the finish line. I need to be in a sea of eager anticipation at the start line and not have to worry about what sort of particles I’m inhaling from my fellow runners. I need the chance to win a little award to keep my mind off the world. But all of these things are just not possible right now. So I googled up a few verses from Isaiah that set my mind at ease again. I hope it helps you as well. The verses are from Isaiah 40:28-31.
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young will fall exhausted; but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.”
Okay. I guess I can wait longer. Thank you for reading my 30th blog.
