Certainly, anyone who has run an ultra, hiked a long distance, or done any activity requiring great stamina can relate to the following verses taken from
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 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.
We have included a brief musical version of this verse taken from the CD "God's Provision" by Integrity Music. It will load while you are reading and will play automatically just once. Enjoy it and we hope it will inspire you just as it does Rebekah.
BTW, if you want to hear the music don't read too fast because it takes a couple of minutes to load.
