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.
This is one of my favorite scriptures. God has given me eagles as a witness sign for Him. I only see them occasionally when I’m looking for confirmation He’s there. The other day I was totally memorized it was Monday morning and I was heading to the gym. I turned into the busy street I have to drive on to get there and I see this large bird. What caught my attention was it’s very large legs. It was chasing something. The bird it was chasing dipped onto the street right in front of me. The eagle almost landed on the street as well and the smaller bird took off and up soared the eagle after it into the bushes on the side of the street. Holy cow I was stunned because every bald eagle I’ve seen usually is soaring up in the sky. It took my breath away.
It’s been a hard couple of weeks for my friend she’s wrestling with health issues. It’s been hard on her core friends as well but praying lots for her. I’ve been dealing with some deep personal issues that sometimes leave me breathless. To me this is a sign from the Lord that there is strength and freedom. It also means change is coming. Eagles for me bring Hope and Encouragement that no matter what we go through in life, God is always with us.
Last year for my 50th birthday I was taken by a couple of my friends to Sparks Lake in Oregon to kayak on this lake. The lake is formed from the water that runs off the mountains that surround it. As we paddled down the lake the scenery of broken top in front of us was so beautiful and breathtaking. Down near one part of the lake we saw a bald eagle. It was flying towards one of the trees. Another bird had caught a fish out of the lake and the eagle had spotted it and as the bird was flying away to eat his catch. The eagle swooped in and took the fish from the bird and then flew off into the tree. It was the most amazing sight I had ever seen. The feathers were each given to me by my two friends and I found the last one floating in the lake.
Leadership qualities of an eagle are they have powerful vision, they are fearless and tenacious and they fly really high and protect their young. I love that God does all these things that eagles do and more. He also protects us from everything.
Thank you Lord for sending me signs from above. No matter what we go through in our lives you will always be there for us guiding and protecting us. No matter what we go through in our lives we must trust Him.
