Those who eat chocolate shall...

Oh. My bad. It's...

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 40:31

I am constantly feeling like I need a little something to perk me up. Chocolate and coffee are my choices 90% of the time. This is partly due to hypoglycemia and partly due to the fact that I never get enough sleep at night. (This "perk me up eating" is different from comfort eating.)

The Lord showed me this familiar verse in a new light earlier this week and my prayer is that when I feel the urge to run to chocolate that I will wait on Him. He will renew my strength!

Isn't it interesting that we are to wait? We can't expect "instant strength" like I have accustomed myself to by going to chocolate and coffee. I might actually have to endure a time of weariness before the strength comes...BUT it will be lasting strength!
