Need to Mount Up on Eagles Wings? Me Too!

Yesterday, I told a good friend that I’m beginning to feel a lot like jelly. Spread way too thin.

Maybe you’ve been there too. Maybe you’re there now.

And then I read a quote by Michelle Sarabia on Facebook that echoed my own heart – “Tired but trusting God.”

All I could think of was, “That’s exactly how I feel!”

And then the Lord led me to pick up the phone and call someone I had been meaning to call for about a week. It was a beautifully transparent conversation with a young woman who knew it was time to mean business with God…and right there on the phone, I had the privilege of leading that sweet young lady to the Lord.

Isaiah 40:31 says, “but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;they shall mount up with wings like eagles;they shall run and not be weary;they shall walk and not faint.”

There ain’t nothing more mounting on eagles wings than getting to introduce someone to Jesus. Oh yeah, I may have been feeling faint, but I didn’t faint. I may have been weary, but I’m still in the race and like my friend Michelle said… I still trust God.

How about you? Are you weary? Are you ready to do some mounting up on eagles wings of your own? What are you struggling with today that might be making you weary?


Before I close this post, I wanted to give you a little update on a couple of things.

1) I made the prayer list of those who requested prayer for their loved ones who are serving in the armed forces. What an honor to lift them up in prayer.

I wanted to ask those of you who subscribe to this blog if you might just take a few minutes and lift them up as well. Some of you may even add their names to your own personal prayer list. That would be awesome!

Here’s the list of names:
Brandon Presnell
Captain Thomas Stengl
Connie’s Nephew
Kimberly Jean Hoisington
Mike Ard
Sean McGrane

2) The Scripture Dig team is sharing favorite posts from each other’s site. This week they’re sharing their favorite post. I’d love for you to pop over and say hi! Let me know if it’s one of your favorites too. 🙂

Love ya, girls! Now go mount up with wings of eagles!


  1. Well, there's nothing like leading someone to the Lord to give you a power boost. Awesome!! Yay God for giving you that privilege. Marsha

  2. Flying with you today Stephanie!

  4. Marsha ~ You're on vacation, young lady! Thanks for popping in and being so uber encouraging! I was very excited about leading that sweet girl to the Lord! God is SO awesome!

  5. Michelle ~ Thanks for letting me use your quote! Last night at church, the youth pastor began praying for those who were tired and then quoted Isaiah 40:31! Imagine that!

  6. Lynn ~ My sweet friend, Lynn! I want you to know you are on my prayer list and I'm praying for complete healing!

    I was just thinking yesterday about how we brag on our daddy's about how they can do anything…and how our DADDY really can do anything! So, I'm praying He heals you!

    Oh, and please know that your sweet spirit illustrates what it looks like to soar on wings of eagles!

    Thank you SO much for your prayers!
