On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 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 40:29-31

Thanks and praise

I praise God that I woke up this morning after sleeping all night in a warm, dry bed in our spacious home. My husband was there next to me, the morning was quiet and dawn was beginning to show itself. As I arise, there is no fear of any enemies in our quiet neighborhood, plenty of food in the kitchen, and the Word was my first taste of the day. I have so many resources at hand to study God's Word, a phone that will play music, I have time with God, preparing for Bible study, plenty of clothes to choose from, and the list goes on.

I am loved, forgiven, redeemed, and have hope for the future because of God's love and grace. He is aware of all that's going on with the world, and all that concerns me and mine. He is working on our behalf.

May I become less and less and He become more and more in me. Praying to know Him more, pressing on to know Him better.

Hosea 6:3, Philippians 3:8, Philippians 1:9. Praying my love will abound more and more, that I will walk in a manner worthy of Him, to build myself up on my most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit and keep myself in God's love, as I wait for Jesus' return. Jude 20-21.

Thank you for this. It only reinforces a message I heard this morning by John Piper. Our purpose is to give glory to our God for who He is and for the salvation He made possible. You have done that and thereby helping each of us to do that as well.

This will be my reminder today too. I feel the same way in so many ways...was reading my One Year Bible this morning, and also looking at the first Bible Study lesson for our women's group that starts back up next week. So many things to be thankful for. God is in control, and that brings comfort and peace.
Love and Hugs and that for a good word this morning.

I love this. I don't have a New Year's Resolution, but my goal is "More of Him. Less of me". Looks like I'm in good company
