from a friend, 7 verses in 7 days

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31.
I recall the first time I heard this passage was during a speech by Eric Liddell in Chariots of Fire. I was moved by the sheer beauty of the verse (Perhaps it was Eric Liddell's pronunciation of Eagles (Iggles)). Previously, when I was a runner, I used to recall this verse and the 23rd Psalm again and again which seemed to help push my mind through the fatigue of the miles.
No longer a runner, I see now that the verse shows me that strength, endurance, and goodness comes from above.
