Soaring On Eagles’ Wings

Soaring On Eagles’ Wings

The everlasting God… gives
power to the weak… But those
who wait on the Lord Shall
renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like
eagles, They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31 (NKJV)

Amidst challenges and strife,
We run the marathon of life.
Everyone must participate;
How we run decides our fate.

It’s an arduous journey,
All will be weak and weary;
Everyone will need strength,
To complete the entire length.

But we are not on our own, The
Creator is on the throne; He
gives power to the meek, When
they are weary and weak.

Lord, as we wait on You,
Our ebbing strength renew;
Empower us by Your grace,
To run with steadfast pace.

That dispirited no more,
On eagles’ wings we soar,
Upward to finish the race,
To see You face to face.
