[Time to get crackin’: He gives strength to the weary]
This “Captain’s Blog” series–admittedly–is going to to be a little different. I’ve gone with “Captain’s Blog” (playing off of Startrek’s Captain’s log) and a flight/bird theme. It’s quirky, but I’m quirky, so it works for me. Plus, I love the sound of Captain’s Blog with the image of Jean-Luc Picard sitting with his tea cup at the ready, recording the days events and insights.
I titled this post “Flying Lessons” with the idea that those who trust in God will renew their strength; they shall soar on wings like Eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint (Isaiah 40:31). I need some “flying lessons.” I’m not there yet. I haven’t been soaring, but I have this hope. Some days I’m on cloud nine and feel as if I’m soaring those blue skies, but then I hit a bit of turbulence and I start to nose dive.
So, this is life as I know it and see it. I want it to be an honest look at who I am through my victories as well as my failures, as God leads me, and I seek to know Him even more. There’s so much more to my blog than just these “flying lessons.” My hope is that you might find some encouragement to help you with your “flying lessons” too.
“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 40:29-31
