Then [Elijah] lay down under the bush and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” - 1 Kings 19:5 (NIV)

God can renew my strength in unexpected ways.
Someone who is weary

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
