"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.”

I Don't Feel No Ways Tired
I thank God for giving me another day. Every morning I must give my body a pep-talk to get it started. Daily there seems to be another ache or pain; or something that is not moving quite like it did yesterday. But I thank God for granting each morning. We know the human body is not designed to last forever – it will break down and deteriorate, much like a car. Somedays when you turn the key, it starts immediately.
Other days, it initially sputters and stalls. I am thankful for a God that never sputters or stalls – a God who can take my deteriorating body and through me do good things. I am thankful for a God who allowed his only son to die on an old rugged cross for our sins. But more than anything, I am thankful for a God, who on the third day raised His son from the dead so that we may have eternal life through Him.
The body may be old and the parts wearing out, but I don’t feel no ways tired. My strength has been renewed in the Lord. I have mounted wings and I am soaring like an eagle. Praise be to God!
Prayer: Thank you Lord, for the strength to endure; to run this race called life. Let me continue to run and walk with you. Amen.

The members and friends of Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church
have written their devotions and reflections on the impact of the season of Lent
in their lives. Each testimony in the booklet is a personal reflection of their experiences.
We welcome you on this journey with us as we discuss our sacrifices and hope
that some aspect of the scripture, reflections, or prayers will inspire you as you
experience the season.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read along with us offline. May God bless and keep you throughout this season of reflection.
