Soar Above


*(A repost from the past, that I needed to read again)

“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.” Isaiah 40:30-31

The Truth: the young, the middle aged, & the old~all grow tired and weary

The Truth: the young, the middle aged & the old~all stumble and fall

the truth: putting one's hope in the nouns of life -people, places and things-

will not renew your strength.

You will run away and grow weary, crawl and faint~

Becoming Hopeless!

Who, what or where are you placing your hope?

Taking the step to HOPE in something better

than what you may be placing your hope in can be a hard step,

but we don't do it alone.

Oh what we can learn from the eagle, or should I say the eaglet~

A precious little eaglet sits in her nest, all comfy and cozy, having all her needs tended to.

But then the mommy eagle begins taking out the comfy cozy padding in the nest, piece by piece. The nest begins to become uncomfortable. The little eaglet is bewildered, and then becomes terrified, as now her mommy has brought her to the edge of the nest. Her mommy is getting ready to kick her out.

“What”, gasps the eaglet. “You are going to do what?

There is a pretty steep drop from this nest to the ground?”

The mommy responds, reminding her little eaglet that she was given wings to fly.

“Where’s daddy? I have to talk to dad about this.” cries the eaglet.

“Look up”, responds her mommy.

And up in the beautiful blue sky the eaglet sees the wingspan of her Daddy spread across the sky as he hovers over the nest. Then at that moment, the mommy eagle pushes her eaglet out of the nest, and immediately the eaglet’s wings open wide as she tries to fly.

Flapping away, the eaglet’s eyes are peeled on her Daddy who is soaring above with His eyes peeled on his daughter, ready to catch her if she falls.

The mommy has tears in her eyes as her job is complete, but the

Father’s job has just begun.

He will never leave,

He will always be soaring above

and that is where the eaglet has placed her hope.

God gave us wings.

God also knows that life will clip our wings,

yet we are still able to soar to greater heights,

because

He is the One who renews our strength.

Our hope is in Him, because~

“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.” Isaiah 40:30-31

Therefore~

Push yourself out of

whatever your

nest of hope is

by

Fixing your eyes on the One Who gave you wings,

because you were made to soar above.

“You see, an eaglet cannot fall faster than her Father can fly." (de Guia)
