“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fail. 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.” Isaiah 40:30-31
Today this post is just to encourage the younger generation during this difficult time to be patient. I am sure I have somewhat addressed this before in a similar post, but it has becoming increasingly stressful even in my home with my 19-year-old daughter. This age group (early 30” s included) are not coping very well with the COVID-19 restrictions. They have become tired of waiting and are now completely frustrated. So frustrated now that just recently here in Florida two women in their early 30’s dressed up as elderly women and got their first COVID-19 vaccine but were caught when they tried to get the second shot.
People long to go live again and do the things they want to do without wearing a mask. In the case of my daughter if I am not careful, we will get into an argument everyday regarding why she cannot go out just for fun. Though she has been extremely careful and always wears her mask, still if there is no real reason to leave your house, then in my opinion just stay home. In addition to that, my daughter was never one to go out at all, she only has one best friend and she never had the urge to be out so often until COVID came along! (weird, right?). But it is hard on all of us and that means we must continue to exercise patience until this season is over, otherwise we are inviting trouble to our front door.
In my opening scripture (Isaiah 40:30-31) says even the youths shall faint and become weary. The Bible is always on point because clearly our youths have become weary and they are fainting fast. They are yet to learn the art of waiting and to receive its rewards. But even though this post is mainly for my younger readers, all of us are now experiencing some level of anxiety over this long season of mask wearing and restrictions. I believe that we all could use some form of encouragement. From having a deadly winter storm in Texas (where most of my family resides) to some of us having financial woes and family issues. It is not easy but let us take heart and continue to stay in God’s word, because only God’s word and faith in him will give us true peace. Let us feast and mediate on his word today and continue to wait on him, so that we can mount up as the eagles according to his word.
Let us pray. Lord, please forgive me of my sins today. Thank you for your word. We continue to rely on you for strength and wisdom as we continue throughout this season and beyond. Lord, please give our children and every young adult the strength and patience to continue to wait out this season. Help them to mediate on your word and draw closer to you in Jesus name. Amen. Until next time. God bless you.
