Isaiah Soars

Isaiah Lee Stone June 15, 2009 - May 17, 2010

Isaiah 40:28-31

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 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.

You son was aptly named and a blessing. You and your family are in my prayers. "The impressive art of (the book of) Isaiah involves taking the stuff of our ordinary and often disappointing human experience and showing us how it is the very stuff that God uses to create and save and give hope... He uses everything and everybody as material for his work..." -- from "The Message" translation of the Bible. Introduction to the book of Isaiah, by Eugene Peterson.
