My Favorite Scripture

I'm just going to post my favorite scripture...this is the scripture on my bible cover...Mr. Cinder read this scripture to me at my baptism (a whole another post for another day)...it was given to him at his baptism and is a scripture which we look to a lot. We have it on a few walls in our house in different forms and we have a lot of eagles throughout our house. When I look at an eagle figurine or picture, I think about this verse. It's so comforting to know that he's never going to tire and get weary and that he's always there to listen, to pick us up and to help us renew our strength when it's completely gone. It's an awesome feeling to feel him pick you up, to feel like you truly are soaring on wings like eagles and that even when you don't think you can go another step, that he gives you this amazing strength and perservance to keep going with him through the bends and curves of life!

Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV)
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

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.

Cool! Eagles! They are so majestic and symbolic of how God is high but swoops low to take care of us. Thanks for stopping by, for I was getting discouraged that nobody wanted to even comment on what I say.

Kc, this isn't the exact look I wanted...one of the links I lost had another link to some really interesting looks and I can't find that link...too bad, I really liked that site. Now that I have this look, I really like it...I tried quite a few on the weekend, but I love blue and it's nice and bright, which is something I wanted too. I love this passage...it's been with me and my sweetie through a lot...I'm glad for the fact that you can store his word away in your heart and draw on it when you really need it!

Street Philosopher, don't get discouraged...I really like what you say and I should comment on people's blogs more than I do...that's something I'm working on. I love how you put it about how God is high but swoops low to take care of us...that's so true!

It's so comforting to know that when we stumble, He is there to pick us up.
When we shed a tear, He is there to wipe it away.
Bless Him!
