Preparing To Soar

When I feel like I am going nowhere and doing nothing of any significance, feeling weak without strength and want to give up I sit on my balcony and look at the sky. Often while gazing at the heavens I think of the verse in Isaiah;

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
Isa 40:31

It always makes me feel better because I trust in the Lord and know that what He says to me is true. In my weariness, He will give me the strength to look forward and to continue on the path where He leads me.eagle-1029908_640

Recently I wrote this in response to a challenge I joined on my other blog, Patricia’s Place

The sharp fragmented pieces wildly scattered about
have gathered as soft feathers to fill this soul
preparing it to soar in the heavens.

What a wonder it is to contemplate the day when the restrictions of this life will be replaced with the freedom of Heaven and we will soar high on wings like eagles.

Blessings this day of grace,

Isaiah 40:31 nlt

 When we trust in God we will rise above our problems and pain.
It takes effort to rise above them and when we do we are free to soar.
Though we may become tired and feel we cannot take another step
the God of our hope renews our strength to continue on.

Do you know what it is like to soar like an eagle?
If not what holds you down?

Blessings this day of grace.patricia
