Simply Sunday | Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

The next time you wait upon the Lord and you find He has renewed your strength, and suddenly you are soaring above life’s problems, think on the following fact about eagles. It provides a visual that I believe firmly underscores the ability for us to soar above whatever life sends our way as long as we wait and hope.

That is why when eagles are flying long distances, especially on migration, they often soar on thermals until they reach a great altitude, and then use the gliding/soaring method of flying to cover the longest distance using the smallest amount of energy.
