Favorite Scripture for Sunday, May 16

I like to start sharing favorite scriptures from time to time.

I can’t even say how often I open my scriptures in the morning and just happen to turn to a verse that I absolutely need to read. This happened last Monday morning. I woke up weary, with less energy than I needed and had much to do. I said my prayers and asked Heavenly Father to guide my reading. All of a sudden I recalled a scripture in Isaiah (trust me, I’m not super familiar with Isaiah) about ‘eagles wings’ — I looked it up on my iPhone app and then turned to it in The Bible. Here it is:

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 ¶ Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

31 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.

Wow. I want and need to learn to better “wait upon the Lord” because I know He loves me and will direct my life for good. I want to learn to ‘let go’ of what has become a running list of to-dos that weighs me down far too often. I’ve been listening (over and over) to a talk on patience that Deiter F. Uchtdorf gave in our last general conference. It is SO GOOD and so what I need to hear (over and over) right now in my life.
This scripture jumped out at me, as a confirmation of the message in President Uchtdorf’s talk.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
