The prompt this week is “fly” and immediately Christian musician Steve Bell’s song Wings of an Eagle pops into my head, playing loudly as if the stereo was actually on.

As we hope in the Lord
We will gain our strength
We will run for miles
We will stand up straight
We will not grow weary
We will not grow faint
On the wings of an eagle we will rise

For the Lord who is God
Takes His people home
Not to be afraid
As we journey the road
Hand in hand we’ll be walking
With the Lord our God
On the wings of an eagle we will rise

I imagine soaring high in the Heavens on the wings of that eagle as it fly’s giving me a sense of weightlessness that only God can grant because only He can lift the weight of the world from my shoulders and truly allow me to rise up, to fly.

Five Minute Friday

This song is often in my heart and on my tongue and I feel so close to the Lord when I hear Steve Bell sing it. His music is his ministry and it is a beautiful one.

I have been sick for the last month and I also just experienced the death of my grandfather as well as a miscarriage and I must admit that I have had dreams of being on the wings of an eagle so that I can see my babies in the Heavens. So I can fly free of this body and be at peace in His holy domain. That I may hear the laughter of my lost babies and meet them for the first time. I know how blessed they each are to have been born directly into the arms of God. To see His face before anything else and I am oh so grateful for that gift. Knowing that Jesus said “let the little children come to me” and teaching me that they are in fact safe with Him.

I am struggling with being ill, somewhat depressed and the idea of being able to no longer hurt and truly FLY with God is an amazing thought.

I can’t wait for Him to whisper my name and call me home. In the meantime I will be the best me that I can be here and I will spread His holy name. I will do my part to please Him, to serve Him and His people.
Until that whisper I will FLY right where I am!

on the wings of an eagle i will fly

  1. Marissa – I’m so sorry to hear about what you have been going through – truly broken hearted over your losses…yes to see our unborn babies one day in heaven will be a glorious thing…I don’t think I have ever quite thought about how the 1st thing they were able to see was His face – thank you for that reminder this morning. I’ve never heard of this song or Steve Bell for that matter but I’m going to go google him now!
    Loved the lyrics and am grateful for you sharing your heart! Just dropping in from FMF!
