Word-Filled Wednesday 2/4/09

"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." Isaiah 40:28-31

I took these downtown today.  I couldn't find information on it, but this sculpture is on the top of a downtown building.  I have a good zoom on my camera!  I had been wanting to get a pic of this because there are quite a few references to eagles in the Bible.  Eagles are strong, powerful birds of prey, and they have good eyesight.  I love the song where we sing that God will raise us up on eagle's wings.  It is a comforting message, and I tend to think of the eagle's wings as a soft, warm place to be, but the message here, is that we will be as strong as the eagles.  I like that message even better, and this eagle is fierce looking.  I want to look like that to Satan, and not like an easy victim.

  1. What great pictures, Sue! And these verses always inspire and strengthen me.


  2. I LOVED this, Sue! As I read, I felt like I was being lifted up on eagle's wings. You have made a powerful connection between the Word and the images - thank you so much. And thanks for all your encouragement over at my place; it gives me strength for the journey:)

  3. Thanks for the comments. If it was easier to do, I would have reversed the order of the pics after deciding to split up the verse like I did.

  4. i LOVE these pics. thanks for visiting my blog and commenting today.

  5. Wow. Great shots! And an encouraging post. Happy WFW. :~D

  6. Beautiful. Love those verses and pictures.

  7. Awesome pictures. Great, powerful verses.


  8. I love your pictures!!!! I have a fancy new camera, but it totally intimidates me. :) I need to really learn what all the functions are for.

    I love how you put the pictures with the scriptures, and how you said you wanted to look fierce like the eagle to Satan. Ahmen!


  9. Yes. I think a fierce stance in the face of evil is important. It is a magnificent form of kindness--upholding the love of God in the face of evil. And it can be dirt work.

  10. Thanks for the new comments. I do like how this one turned out. Carol, I still haven't learned how to use all of the features on my camera, which I got in November or December. Sometimes, I will accidentally push something, and weird things I don't understand will show up in my view screen.

    The best way to keep that fierceness is by being in the Word, and I still sometimes put it off and don't get it done each day.
