During her middle school years, my daughter,
inspired by Isaiah 40:31, composed the following poem.

I saw an eagle
Soaring above the land
Looking so free
Compared to a man.
His strong wings were spread
As the gray clouds grew
In stormy wind
Without fear he flew
My friend was the eagle
Who soared without fear
Who kept his faith
Through struggles and tears
The strength of my friend
Came from within
Waiting on God
Instead of on men
—Christy Nine


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. -Isaiah 40:31
