Sunday's Thought

"Springs Tulips"
I got a bit of good news this week and was sharing it with a friend.  She sent me two Scriptures, which are my favorite but in a different translation/version/paraphrase of the Bible.  I'd like to share these two with you:

"I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]".  Philippians 4:13 [Amplified Bible]

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.  Isaiah 40:31 [Amplified Bible]

The second Scripture is my favorite and has been a source of encouragement and strength for over 20 years.
