. . . 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.
A few days ago I was chatting with a friend who needed some encouragement. She is temporarily staying overseas for some training—far away from her family and her spiritual family (her church).
Many of her work mates and roommates have no commitment to Christ. Their lifestyles, values, and priorities are very different from hers. She cannot always join them in their “night life” because she knows some of these activities would not honor Christ.
She’s standing firm, but it’s been a lonely road. She confessed feeling alone and isolated.
Here’s what I told her:
Eagles soar high above other birds. Therefore, eagles must be willing to fly alone.
Chickens, on the other hand, are content to scratch along the ground with other chickens.
Which would you rather be?
