How do we continue pushing forward when our legs become weak? How do we hold onto hope when our hands grow tired? These are real, honest, raw questions that many of us are daily wrestling through. It's easy to slip into a pattern of outwardly pretending that everything's okay, and not admitting, even to ourselves, that we've grown weary, all while we inwardly crumble. It's easy to simply loosen our grip on hope and lose traction. But hope isn't a one-time decision, and a purposeful life isn't one that's free of obstacles.
"So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong." - Hebrews 12:12-13 (NLT)
