Recipe # 8

“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 like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” ~Isaiah 40: 29-31

Measureless amounts of Jesus



When you find yourself tired; weary from the battles that have come your way, don’t give up!  The road may be rocky and you may feel like all strength has left your body disabling you from moving forward, but stay the course!  God does not wish for you to go at it alone, He truly wants to be your warrior and lead the charge against the obstacles in your life, all you have to do is ask!  This may sound too elementary and too simple in concept but this is the truth.  Now, will results and good outcomes be immediate the minute you ask him to go to war on your behalf?  Not always, but just because it doesn’t happen right away doesn’t mean it won’t happen, it just means there is learning along the way for you.  Half the battle is the journey itself to get there and the incredible things that God can show you about yourself.  There is an old Chinese Proverb that states, “The journey is the reward.” Take heart and know you are not alone, no matter what it is you are facing and that strength can be found amidst the weakness you feel now.  First there must be desire, a yearning to move forward despite the circumstances.  Next we need to add perseverance because we may have the desire but we must continually push forward with God at the helm as we seek our breakthrough.  Then it is vital we possess belief and faith; believing God for His promises and His word and what he desires to do in our life.  And faith in knowing it will come to pass.  Throughout this mixture ceaseless amounts of Jesus should be used, in fact, there shouldn’t be any left over!

The Salvation Army's Transitional Housing program for families and single women is designed to provide a hand up and assist individuals with their transition out of homelessness into stable housing. We offer apartments for up to 2 years for families and single dorm like settings for single woman. They are assigned a case manager and classes are provided to them such as job readiness, counseling and budgeting. Many arrive on our doorstep with little to no strength left and just an ounce of hope to their name. We are here with arms open wide to greet them and reveal how God can and will work in their life; He will provide! For more info on this program, please contact Jen at 416-4218


Serves those who are tired but who refuse to give up!
