He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. – Isaiah 40:29 NIV

Lord, before me a mountain looms mysterious and overwhelming. How will I make it? How will I get beyond it? Is my journey over? Can’t you move it? No? Then give me strength, power, and fortitude as I climb it! In the physical, I have little strength, but with You I can overcome. Amen.

Give yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life, and surrender your whole being to him to be used for righteous purposes. – Romans 3:13 GNT

Dear God, I once thought surrendering to You was a frightening thing to do. As I’ve walked with You and finally surrendered all to You, I’ve seen that it’s the most freeing, trusting, and assuring thing I’ve ever done. Thank You for giving me a surrendered heart to love You deeper and more completely than I could have ever imagined. Amen.
