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

Friday Foto Friends

On Thursday evening, I joined a couple of friends to attend the October Pink Impact night of worship, the theme being Encounter God. 

Questions we are to ponder as we wait on God are:
  1. Is there a fear in my heart You want to talk to me about?
  2. What do you want me to know about who You are?
  3. What do You want to talk to me about?
  4. Have I believed a lie about You?
  5. Have I believed a lie about myself?
  6. How do You see me, Lord?

As we worshiped and prayed, especially as we sang about God healing our nation, I know that no matter, no matter what happens, God will have His way! He always does. He is Lord! He is Supreme! And therefore, I do not have to fear. It says in Isaiah 8:12b-13 NIV that we do not fear what they fear. 

“Do not fear what they fear,
and do not dread it.
The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy,
he is the one you are to fear,
he is the one you are to dread."

My circumstances don't define me. He is using them to refine and fulfill His purpose in me. 

What I know.

He loves me. 

He says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love. I have drawn you with unfailing kindness" Jeremiah 31:3 NIV

"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure." 1 John 3:1-3 NIV

He cares for me and wants to take care of me.


But, it is not all about me. It's about His will, His way, His timing. Trust ... wait ... obey. Keep taking one more step. Have faith - that is what pleases God. Praise Him for what He has done in the past, for His faithfulness in the past and His faithfulness that He will show now and forevermore.

who was, who is and is to come!

Connie- This is a beautiful, beautiful post. I know that we worry and worry and it really doesn't matter because what will happen is what is supposed to happen and it will be all right no matter which way things go. I pray for our country and for our leaders to make wise decisions to bring glory and honor back to our country. I think that is what we are supposed to do-and to give God the glory for it. xo Diana
