One of the most overused cliches in sports is when a commentator points out that a pitcher or player doesn’t have their A game. This same concept applies to life as somedays no matter how hard you try, nothing seems to go right or well. Subsequently, there are moments in life when you need someone to carry you until you regain confidence and strength.
He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. 30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; 31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired, Isaiah 40:29-31.
Ellie Holcomb sings about this topic in her new song I Will Carry You. While Ellie first was recognized as a member of the band Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, she’s spent the past decade on her own. When I first listened to, I Will Carry You, I was reminded of the Footprints Poem and the promise of an Old Testament prophet. May today’s song carry you through any trials that you are facing in life.
