Chapter 9, Page 4, Book 12



ON EAGLES' WINGS

You who dwell in the shadow of His wings,who abide in His shadow for life, say to the Lord: 
My refuge, my God in whom I trust!

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings,bear you on the breath of dawn,make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

The snare of the fowler will never capture you,and famine will bring you no fear:under
 His wings your refuge,His faithfulness your shield.

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings,bear you on the breath of dawn,make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

You need not fear the terror of the night,nor the arrow that flies by day; though thousands fall about you,
near you it shall not come.

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

For to His angels He's given a command to guard you in all of your ways'upon their hands they will bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, 
make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand.


TERRIFIC 2'S Tuesday/  A hymn to start the week and my thoughts 

I hope you all had a wonderful 3 day Labor Day weekend.  I've been starting each week with a hymn and so as today is our start to the work week, I thought I'd put it on my Tuesday post.

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come.  When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it. The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.

When the storms of life come upon us, and all of us will experience them, we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow God's power to lift us above them. God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.

Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle them.
 What a great thought to start out a new week!  

Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday everyone.

Great words to an old hymn. I remember stories of Eagles from childhood. Dad (and most preachers) are FANS of Eagles. So many illustrations!!!
I love it when we are near areas of Eagles.
