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 40:31
Joyce Meyer was preaching on this verse this morning and she described storms in life from an eagle's point of view. Most birds run for cover when they see a storm coming, but eagles, she says, stare into the storm, spread their wings and let it lift them up higher than they could usually get on their own.
They will soar on wings like eagles, those that hope in the Lord.
What a promise, to be higher and closer to God as we go through life's storms.
Tears sprung into my eyes and I smiled because I've already been shown this to be true.
And because the next time I see a storm coming I will stare into it and spread my wings.
