Eagles Wings

Year ago, my former district superintendent, Dr. Steve Babby, presented me with an eagle statue during a morning service at Wesleyan Church of the Valley in Bonita, California. His kind words about my leadership of the church and district both humbled and inspired me. That eagle is one of my most prized possessions and has a place of prominence in my office. I'm always lifted up when I see that eagle.

In Isaiah 40, we find these words of hope: "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." (40:31)

For those of you who take the time to read this blog, would you please do me a favor? Would your please take a moment and tell me an "eagle story" from your life? What has God renewed your strength? When did He enable you to soar on eagles wings, especially after a time when you struggled? Let's share our stories with each other and encourage one another with these words of hope.


  1. tap tap tap.
    is this thing on?

    where are the words of hope, people?!
    hope... anyone got some?

  2. Sarah, apparently, there are none. Sad...

  3. I already previosuly tried to post a comment and I will try again. The Lord does provide strength when we need it. He sends people, songs and other things that lift us up when we need it. God work even in the small things in our life. I will continue to need that strength as I face my work world.

  4. Janice, you are a great servant in all areas of life. The Lord will give you strength, just as He has time and again. Keep soaring!
