To soar on wings like eagles

August 25, 2008

 27 Why do you say, O Jacob,
       and complain, O Israel,
       “My way is hidden from the LORD;
       my cause is disregarded by my God”?

 28 Do you not know?
       Have you not heard?
       The LORD is the everlasting God,
       the Creator of the ends of the earth.
       He will not grow tired or weary,
       and his understanding no one can fathom.

 29 He gives strength to the weary
       and increases the power of the weak.

 30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
       and young men stumble and fall;

 31 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.

Isaiah 40: 27-31

I cannot adequately verbalise the frustration of feeling that like an eagle with a broken wing.  Let me correct that – a lost, homeless eagle alone with a broken wing.  It is an odd sort of identity crisis.  It is knowing exactly who you are and who you are supposed to be but somehow not really knowing where you are, how the hell you got there and not having the capacity (or whatever) to find your way home.  Freaking frustrating.
