September 30, Today’s thought – Uplift

Good Morning

they shall mount up with wings as eagles; Isaiah 40:31

A young minister in our town asked some of us to describe the role we’d like to have God play in our lives. “In just one word,” he said.
An interesting collection of words came forth:
Protector, Redeemer, Guide, Comforter, Friend and so on.
But there was one unexpected reply, “I’d like Him,” this man said, “to be my Chauffeur.”
All of us were taken aback until he explained his choice. “When hot-air ballooning was invented some two hundred yeas ago in France, ” he said, “the man in charge of the fire underneath the balloon that produced the hot air was known as the chauffeur, from the French word, chauffer, meaning to heat. Without the work of the chauffeur, the balloon couldn’t soar I couldn’t even rise.
“I like the thought of God breathing His life=giving Spirit into me every single day so that I can rise above trials and difficulties and preoccupation with w material things. Without the life that God supplies I can do nothing.”
~~~Arthur Gordon

Isaiah 40:28-31
Hast thou not known?
hast thou not heard,
that the everlasting God, the LORD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth,
fainteth not, neither is weary?
there is no searching of his understanding.
He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.

Rise above . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
