Give Me Strength

Give me strength Lord,
strength for what needs doing;
strength to hang on,
strength to let go;
strength in weariness,
exhaustion,
stumbling;
strength to stand back up,
strength to lay down and sleep;
Strength in your strength,
soaring, running, walking
in you,
with you,
through you

Isaiah 40:21-31 (CEV)

God Rules the Whole Earth

21 Don’t you know?
    Haven’t you heard?
Isn’t it clear that God
    created the world?
22 God is the one who rules
    the whole earth,
and we that live here
    are merely insects.
He spread out the heavens
like a curtain or an open tent.

23 God brings down rulers
    and turns them into nothing.
24 They are like flowers
freshly sprung up
    and starting to grow.
But when God blows on them,
they wilt
and are carried off
    like straw in a storm.

25 The holy God asks,
“Who compares with me?
    Is anyone my equal?”

26 Look at the evening sky!
    Who created the stars?
Who gave them each a name?
    Who leads them like an army?
The Lord is so powerful
that none of the stars
    are ever missing.

The Lord Gives Strength

27 You people of Israel, say,
“God pays no attention to us!
    He doesn’t care if we
    are treated unjustly.”

But how can you say that?
28 Don’t you know?
    Haven’t you heard?
The Lord is the eternal God,
    Creator of the earth.
He never gets weary or tired;
his wisdom cannot be measured.

29 The Lord gives strength
    to those who are weary.
30 Even young people get tired,
    then stumble and fall.
31 But those who trust the Lord
    will find new strength.
They will be strong like eagles
    soaring upward on wings;
they will walk and run
    without getting tired.
