SCRIPTURE for Sunday

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint." --Isaiah 40:31
It is said that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks, and will fly to some high spot to wait for the winds to come.

When the storm hits, the eagle sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it. The eagle doesn't escape the storm, but simply uses the storm to lift itself higher and rises on the winds that bring the storm.

All of us face the storms of life at some time, but God can enable us to rise above them if our faith and trust are in Him.

Remember, it's not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it's how we handle them. --Author Unknown
