Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope 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.

For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
they walk and don’t lag behind.
(The Message)

…if we are honest with ourselves and with what is in our hearts, we admit that we know and feel that this world is too much for us. We are in over our heads. We live and work–at home, at our job, in our studies, in the church–in contexts and settings that insidiously eat away at our capacity to be people of courage. Our only hope is to appreciate that we are not in this alone. (Gordon T. Smith, Courage and Calling)
