Renew My Strength

He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. . . .Those who wait on 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. – Isaiah 40:29, 31 NKJV
 
I didn’t get half the things I needed to do accomplished yesterday, Lord. And today I feel as if I have no energy. I am flagging, Lord, and I don’t know what to do. So I arise early and come here to spend time with You. Calm my nerves. Remind me that the world is not going to fall apart if I don’t accomplish everything on my to-do list today or even tomorrow, yet show me how to use my time wisely. Give my heart peace, and as I spend these moments with You, give me strength so that I may walk in Your power. Amen.
