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
This verse from Isaiah 40:31 is one of my favourite verses. It gives a powerful image. When you watch an eagle soaring in the sky above it looks fantastic, very powerful, full of majesty and beauty. What it must be like to do that. In these verses we read that we can soar on wings like eagles, run and not be weary, walk and not be faint - there is only condition that we must satisfy to enable us to do so - we need to hope in the LORD. This hope is not the kind of wishy-washy hope that it doesnt snow anymore! It is putting everything we are, everything we have, all of our lives in the Lords hands - when we place that kind of hope in the LORD then our strength will be renewed.
As you listen to the song may you know His peace, and may your strength be renewed.

Danny Alexander MP has praised the Salvation Army in Inverness for its work in helping break the cycle of homelessness.
Speaking in the Inverness Courier, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury and local MP, said the work of the Inverness Resettlement Project was making a real difference to the lives of many vulnerable people.
Mr Alexander met members of the church and charity, along with management and service users at the project – which focuses on getting people into their own homes and supporting them.
Corps assistant Tom Mitchell at Easterhouse in Glasgow has featured in The Herald Magazine.
Tom was the subject of the newspaper's latest 'What it feels like...' column, speaking about what it feels like to run a foodbank over Christmas.
He said: "We decided to set up the foodbank after my wife and I received a call from a local school where children were turning up hungry. It made us stop and think.
"It's great to see people progressing. One man who came to us had lost his money through gambling. We put him in touch with Gamblers Anonymous and now he has food in his fridge and money in the bank. He's got this spark and volunteers now."

To start the year of why not listen to General Andre Cox's new year message.
“Today, as we thank God for his faithfulness to The Salvation Army over 150 years, can we imagine what he has in store for us? The exciting part is that, just like William Booth, we never fully envisage what God can do through us if obediently we fully depend on him.”

Life, I am the new year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am your opportunity to practice
what you have learned about life
during the last twelve months.
All that you sought
and didn't find is hidden in me,
waiting for you to search it out
with more determination.
All the good that you tried for
and didn't achieve
is mine to grant
when you have fewer conflicting desires.
All that you dreamed but didn't dare to do,
all that you hoped but did not will,
all the faith that you claimed but did not have -
these slumber lightly,
waiting to be awakened
by the touch of a strong purpose.
I am your opportunity
to renew your allegiance to Him who said,
'behold, I make all things new.'
I am the new year.
