I was listening to my ipod during lunch today, sitting in my car while rain fell gently on the windows outside. A new Fireflight song came on called “For Those Who Wait” and while I listened to the encouraging lyrics Isaiah 40:31 came to mind:
Those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
Notice it says those who trust (hope, wait) in the Lord will gain strength. I take that to also mean “those who scramble about like chickens with heads cut off trying to control everything will find themselves exhausted and no better off than before.” It’s in there, just read between the lines.
