We love to read of great feats and heroic tales; the inspiring trials of overcoming all odds. We hold these stories and testimonials up telling ourselves, “I want to have that kind of courage, I want to be that heroic.” Everyone of us gets the opportunity to rise up in courage. Our personal stories may be different from those we have read but they are our stories nonetheless.
It’s the moments in between the overcoming that rattle one’s senses. The place where you cradle your head while telling your body to just breathe. In these places you are alone with the Lord asking the incredible question, “What do I do next?” When the answer is, “wait”, our trial begins; all the while doing our best to just breathe.
Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
