Wings of an eagle

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 (KJV) https://www.youdevotion.com/today/may/28 #taptapstudio #youdevotion

The average distance that an eagle can fly is 125 miles at about 35 miles per hour. Staying in the air for 4-6 hours at a time, averaging around 225 miles per day. Amazingly, with wind currents’ help, up to 100 miles of the distance is without flapping its wings. It is one of the most beautiful sights to watch these majestic birds soar with so little effort.

Every year these birds fly south, with many making their home along the Mississippi River between Grafton and Alton, Illinois, where I have lived my entire life. Nesting in many of the islands that are scattered throughout the river. As you drive down the Great River Road scenic highway that skirts right along the river, you can see cars parked on the side of the road. People get out of their vehicles with their cameras, taking pictures or videos of these beautiful birds.

When the river freezes, the eagles and other birds of prey stand on the ice. Waiting for just the right moment to dive down to catch the meal for their eaglets before flying off to one of these islands, where the young eagles are waiting rather impatiently for their meal.

As we go throughout our lives, we need time to rest our weary bodies. We need to clean out the clutter that we keep locked up inside us. To do that, we need to allow God to carry us as on the wings of an eagle, to glide through the troubled times. Then he will gently let us down, feeling refreshed and full of joy.

But like the adult eagle, He is always on the lookout for food to feed us when our soul needs to be refreshed

There is sound.
