Carried on God's Wings...

Carried by God!

"The LORD your God carried you,
as a Father carries his son,
all the way you went, until you reached this place"
Deuteronomy 1:30

My husband and I went to Lake Norfork this past weekend
to check out the eagle's nest,
and to see if the eagles were raising another batch of young there.

And the answer is YES!
One was on the huge nest when we arrived.
While we were watching, the mate swooped in for a landing.

Can you see the feathers hung in the branches?
Those feathers reminded me of some verses in the Bible
that show God's care for us. 

"Like an eagle that rouses her chicks and hovers over her young, 
so He spreads His wings to take them up and carried them safely on His pinions."
Deuteronomy 32:11

"I have carried you before you were born.
I will be your God throughout your lifetime...
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you."
Isaiah 46:3-4

"Each day He carries us in His arms"
Psalm 68:10

"He will carry the lambs,
holding them close to His heart"
Isaiah 40:11

If you've been following my posts,
I'm sure you know that my thoughts and prayers have been with my nephew Joel
in his fight against glioblastoma brain cancer.
These verses seemed especially appropriate this week
as he is finishing up with radiation treatments.

The Eagle is such a majestic bird and even with those big talons,cares for the eggs and young so tenderly.Love the Bible verses which speak of how God carries us.
