Renew Your Strength through His Strength
God wants to build your character through your waiting season. It's through His strength that we can persevere in life. There's something refreshing about that. Be all in this year. He is for you. It doesn't matter what's going on around you... be all in. It doesn't matter what your friends are doing. God isn't looking at your friends to build your strength, he's looking at you.
"But those who hope is in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
