Soaring on Wings Like Eagles

20170628_172207

“…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.”

Isaiah 40: 30, 31

Note: The word for hope here is not a passive term, as in waiting for a bus. It is an active word, as in seeking and trusting in.

I believe this is the essential part of having faith.

Isaiah 58: 11

100_1539

“The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs

in a sun scorched land and will strengthen your frame.

You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring

whose waters never fail.”

 

Lord God we are so thirsty from the trials

of the day, please guide us to Your spring

and well-watered garden, where

we can rest.

Amen

Isaiah 51:1-3a

100_1458

Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the Lord:

Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry

from which you were hewn; look to Abraham, your father,

and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called

him he was but one, and I blessed him

and made him many. The Lord

will surely comfort Zion

and will look with compassion,

on all her ruins…
