LIF













Often on Friday I post Lyrics I Feel (LIF) here is what is speaking to me this week...

Everlasting God
Brenton Brown & Ken Riley


Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary
You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles


I once saw a momma Eagle teaching her babies to fly...she would fly up very high with them riding on her wings...then drop them off into thin air...they would thrash and flail about for several dozens of feet, sometimes dropping like little bricks until she caught them up again on her wings....but sometimes they accidentally caught a draft and soared off for a bit...just a little, riding the wind like their momma...I don't know if they learned to fly or not that day... for eventually she carried them away on her wings...

May you learn to fly...and when you can't quite get the hang of it...may He carry you on His wings...Selah

He takes us right where we are, and teaches us to soar...

How wonderful to know He will lift us up "on eagles' wings".

Oh, I've been carried - when wearyness takes over, His wings never fail to catch me.
Beautiful lyrics!

The eagle story reminds me of when I tried to raise a few wild birds that got sucked out of a chimney at my mothers house (vacuum cleaner). I tried to teach them to fly and thought they were going to make it. But they got sick and died, and it broke my heart.

Not quite the same flavor of story, but I thought I would share it anyway!
