It Is Not Hopeless

Episode 126: It Is Not Hopeless Some people were born to run marathons. Some were even born to win them. Most of us, however, prefer the short route and the quickest route from one point to another. Marathons just are not our thing, so we never enter the race. Upon the spiritual journey, we are not given a choice. The race of faith is long, and sometimes it is exhausting. We can be tempted to wonder if we will ever finish. We don’t always feel like we are winning. From a very obscure verse in the book of Isaiah, we hear the voice of God encouraging us, motivating us and affirming us when we get tired. He does not mind us getting weary. He understands. What He loves is when the weariness does not rob us of our hope. Hear what He has to say to any and all runners who are feeling the weight of the marathon stretch.
