But those who wait for The Lord, who expect, look for, and hope in Him shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up close to God as eagles mount up to the sun; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint; or become tired. Isaiah 40:31
As I reached for my weights this morning to start my daily weight loss class I call "Yo, God" my imagination already was ahead of me. Instantly I knew what scripture I wanted to meditate on while working out. Feeling great from the refreshing Christmas gathering with my family there were new smiles on my face and heart that weren't there before.
Before meeting with my family I felt like the poem that stated "how do I know my youth has been spent because my get up and go has got up and went." Mine was more like this:
" How do I know that my strength has been spent.
Because my get up and go has got up and went.
With my spirit flat on the floor and my smile upside down
I wondered how in the world was I going to get around.
My cancer had me dragging; life's stress had its toil,
was there really something I could do to get out of this hole?
Then I spent time in the scripture and exchange laughter with others,
suddenly what was flat was no longer smothered.
It's true what God says about renewing your strength,
next time I will mount up like an eagle in a blink.
It may take me back to the scriptures, to my family galore
but one thing I know I won't leave my spirit at the door.
God is my strength its not the weights in my hands
but its His love and His presence that gives me my stand.
Now with my spirit inflated again to be worn,
my upturned smile returns to me more.
Come fly with me eagles, come fly with me now.
Lets renew our strength in God and get our feet off the ground.
Life's too short to be a chicken unable to fly.
Lets fly away, fly away, fly away all.
Mount up fellow eagles.
"Yo, God here comes Your convocation of eagles."
