Our weekly wisdom

Flying for God

Over the past couple of months I have been watching, via a webcam. a pair of ospreys lay three eggs, incubate them, for each of them to hatch, for the helpless babies to be regularly feed on fish, for feathers to form and the first chick to fly on Tuesday, 51 days after it was born. Amazing!!

This reminded me of a verse in Isaiah 40v31 where it says ‘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.’

To me that means if I trust in the Lord, feed on His Word, the bible, I will be able to soar and fly with Him where ever he wants me to go i.e. at work, meeting and talking with new people, through difficulties and trials and daily living. As a bonus I will not be tired and will be able to keep on going.

How is your eating and flying going?
