Strength & Power


Recently, I observed this Bald Eagle,
as it sat at 90 ft, guarding the nearby nest of its young eaglets. I was immediately reminded of another favorite promise from the Holy Scriptures:
“He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might, He increases strength ... 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.”1
The eagle … a symbol of strength and power. My heavenly Father ... the giver of strength and power!
1. Isaiah 40:29,31 (NKJV)

The bright colors jump off the black page with the promises of His word, and hope through your interpretations. Very nice, Merle. I have some poetry friends who often use scritpture in their writings and will point them to your blog.
