Eagle’s Wings

IMG_4503 (2)

We read more from Isaiah today about a God who does not weary or faint. God does not hang on to that power alone but willing shares it. Those who wait upon the Lord are promised that they shall mount up like eagles, run but not be tired out. God gives power to those without it.

Eagles are magnificent creatures that take my breath away. I love to watch them fly and dance in the sky, so powerful, so awe-inspiring. I remember one summer watching the eagles circle above me on the beach, interacting with each other in an amazing ritual that left me wondering what had just happened. God is like that too.

Our God does not promise without delivering. Our job is to recognize the package when it arrives though because it may not be what we expected.  In Psalm 103 we ready that we should not forget all the benefits the Lord bestows on us, God is slow to anger and abounding in love and does not deal with us as we envision. Thank goodness for that!

We are mid-way through peace week. I watched the candles burn a bit today and was calmed by the fact that around the world people are lighting the same candles as I am and praying for peace. The Gospel of Matthew assures us that if we come to Jesus that our heavy burdens will become light and we will find rest. I long for that at the moment. Come, Lord Jesus, Come.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
