you wanna fly like an eagle?

"But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not grow faint." Isaiah 40:31

This is one of my favorite verses to go to when I feel as though the world is crashing down around me. We can take each phrase here and gain so much. When we feel weak, we when we feel as though we can't go on we can call upon the Lord and He will be there. All we have to do is say His name. When we are down He will renew us. What a gift, to be renewed by our Lord, to feel His strength and power running through us. Have you ever watched an eagle fly? They don't flap their wings a lot, they don't run out of energy, they open their wings and soar. When the wings of a bird are wet they cannot fly, just as when we are down, when the burdens are piling up on us, we cannot have the strength to stand, but when we let go we can learn to soar too. We are often impatient, we want things right now, we want those blessings right now, but we must learn to wait on the Lord and His timing, for He has His hand in all and He knows just what we need to bring Him glory. When we go ahead and do things on our own without waiting on the Lord things seem to go wrong even though we have tried so hard to make them right. But when we choose to wait on Him, the blessings will fall upon us and our eyes will be open to things we would have never seen unless we would have waited on Him. Before we learn to run a race, we must first learn how to walk in Faith. A runner trains for many months and at times years before they are ready to take on a marathon, we too must train in our marathon of life. We can't just take off running, we must wait on the Lord and when we do He will give us the strength, the stamina, and the courage to overcome, to make it across that finish line. Praise Jesus He gives us His word to learn from, and when we seek Him first, we will not only fly, but we will soar like an eagle and the beauty of an eagle is something to be amazed by. As a child I use to watch them for hours, admiring their flight, their beauty and come to find out years later, the Lord shows me I too can soar with the beauty of an eagle. In confidence we can wait upon the Lord. In faith we can believe all in our life will happen in His timing for the best blessings of all, and in hope, we can see the unseen with a powerful faith. Are you ready to soar today? Believe, trust and obey our Savior, letting go of all that is keeping you grounded~
