AND Remember, Go loves you.
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.
