Only when you sit still

         Have you not known? Have you not heard?

         The LORD is the everlasting God,

                  the Creator of the ends of the earth.

         He does not faint or grow weary;

                  his understanding is unsearchable.

         He gives power to the faint,

                  and strengthens the powerless.

         Even youths will faint and be weary,

                  and the young will fall exhausted;

         but those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength,

                  they shall mount up with wings like eagles,

         they shall run and not be weary,

                  they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31


Only when you sit still can you feel the updraft;


even atop a mountain, after a long hard climb


only when you stop to soak it in (the aches, the foot sore, the sweat)


only when you pause


do you take in the message


waiting for you


of continued hope and promise


beyond now-
