I bless you today to find your second wind.
Maybe you’ve seen it.
The runner’s at the back of the pack–
It seems she has no chance.
But, suddenly, strangely,
Everyone else starts fading,
As she finds her second wind.
The rejuvenation of body and mind
Can happen via mystery…
Renewal by a miracle.
It can happen for us anytime in Christ.
The wind of the Spirt blows,
And at the moment we most feel like giving up,
We find new grace to keep on going.
Beloved, I think we give up too early.
What if Joshua had marched around the walls
Six times and decided it was futile?
What if leprous Naaman had dipped in the Jordan
Six times and decided it was folly?
Don’t stop your race now.
No matter how fatigued,
You’re might be just one more lap from victory.
I bless you to find grace to persevere
As you find your second wind.
