“…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.” Isa. 40:31
We are reminded of this verse every morning on our drive into the office because of this wondrous event we have been privileged to watch take place…the birth of a new baby Bald Eagle.
Sitting on the top an electrical power pole along the roadside is a large wooden platform placed there for this very purpose — to provide a nesting place for eagles.
And, a pair of American Bald Eagles has chosen this location next to our office to build their nest and hatch their young. (Photo above: female eagle with her baby eagle next to her, they both have their backs to the camera, unfortunately.)
Each day we watch for them. Sometimes they are in the nest and at other times they are perched on the crossbar majestically overlooking the humans below rushing off to their own destinations. A real treat is to watch them take flight and soar against the blue sky with a wing span that is remarkable. The baby bird hasn’t been out of the nest yet that we can tell, and it is possible that there is more than one.
The male eagle is much larger than the female, and can often be found sitting in a field across the road where the water pools after a rain shower.
God’s Word says in Isa. 40:29 that, “He give strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
This would be our prayer request for the month of February and March; for God to give us strength and empower us to do the work of His ministry, but then to also have the wisdom to take time to rest in Him and be renewed.
