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 to him who has no might He increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
And young men shall fall exhausted;
But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength,
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Tears fall as I read and type this. I just received the bulletin from Jim's funeral. Inside, Joyce, his wife of 58 years, wrote me a note. "God had other plans for this spring."
We don't know God's plans and try to make our own. But, God's plans are always best. And, when we wait on Him, He renews our strength. We fly, run, walk farther, faster, and higher than we ever could have imagined.
Jim modeled that.
