SON SHINE 55: ENERGY UNBOUND
The agile guide in his late fifties moved ahead the two of us to the uphill settlement in the outback of the Yabo area of Sokoto State, Nigeria. That was the closest we got to him. There was a plain, then a stream, then sand dunes, then a rocky ascent where we sweated profusely, meandering through crag and steep incline, cattle and herdsmen, before our destination. It was one trip of a lifetime, but the man continued on his return journey with a bounce, probably wondering what was wrong with younger ones who cannot enjoy a good stroll.
?Even the youths shall faint and be weary?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 (KJV)
Fainting? Look up, don?t give up.
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
