February 7, 2021 – 5th Sunday after Epiphany

Isaiah 40:29-31 promises that “God gives strength to the weary, and empowers the powerless….those who wait on God find a renewed power: they soar on eagles’ wings, they run and don’t get weary, they walk and never tire.”

But oftentimes we don’t feel connected to this source of power and energy. We feel tired, worn-out, overwhelmed and exhausted by daily life. Instead of soaring on eagles wings we feel like we are lumbering along on turtle legs. Can we choose to claim this promise of power? Are there ways to shift ourselves into this channel of life and energy? Can we catch the same wind that the eagles soar on? And if so, how? Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West reflects on this passage of promise.
