“On Eagle’s Wings”
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.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
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.
|I give thanks;
To my precious Friend
and Savior, Jesus Christ.
For His great love and
compassion to me. His
death on the cross at
Calvary, that I may
receive the precious gift
of eternal life. For giving
me new hope and a reason
to live, so that every note
I play, every breath I take,
may be for Him.
On Eagle's Wings - now playing!

The Bald Eagle is a powerful flier, and soars on thermal convection currents
(vertical movements of heat). It is partially migratory. If its territory has
access to water, it remains there year-round, but if not, it migrates to the
south or to the coast during winter, in order to obtain food. During
migration, it may ascend in a thermal and then glide down, circling as it
sweeps against a cliff or other terrain. Migration generally takes place during
the daytime when thermals are produced by the sun.
The Bald Eagle’s body length ranges from 27 to 40 inches. Adult females
have an average wingspan of about 7 feet. Adult males have a wingspan of
6 ft 6 inches. Adult females weigh approximately 12.8 lbs, and male’s
approx 9 lbs. The largest are the Alaskan birds, where large females can
exceed 16.5 lbs and have a wingspan of over 8 feet. In the wild, Bald Eagles
typically live about 20-30 years, but can live up to a life span of about 50
The Bald Eagle's diet is varied, but consists mainly of fish. In the Pacific
Northwest, spawning trout and salmon provide most of its food source. To
hunt fish, the eagle swoops down over the water and snatches the fish out
of the water with its talons.
The Bald Eagle prefers habitats near seacoasts, rivers, large lakes, and other
large bodies of open water with an abundance of warm-water fishes. They
require old-growth and mature stands of coniferous or hardwood trees for
perching, roosting, and nesting. Trees must have good visibility, an open
structure, proximity to prey, and located near a large body of water. Their
nests may stretch as large as eight feet across and weigh up to a ton (907
kg). The Bald Eagle's natural range covers most of North America, including
most of Canada, all of the continental United States, and northern Mexico.
The Bald Eagle is the national bird of the United States of America. It is
probably one of the country's most recognizable symbols, and appears on
most of its official seals, including the Seal of the President of the United
States. Its national significance dates back to June 20, 1782, when the
Continental Congress officially adopted the current design for the Great Seal
of the United States including a Bald Eagle grasping arrows and an olive
branch with its talons. Some states had earlier done so in 1778.

This song was inspired by one of my favorite verses in the bible; Isaiah 40:31, those who
hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. And also
in Exodus 19:4, when God told Moses to tell the children of Israel; “You yourselves have
seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to
When we put our hope in the LORD He renews our strength, He carries us along as though
we were soaring on wings like eagles! When life’s burdens weigh heavily upon me, I remind
myself of who is in control, God, who so faithfully relieves my anxieties and worries, as I fix
my eyes upon Him. Even in the midst of painful trials and circumstances, I feel His presence
and strength upon me.
Consider the eagle and how it flies; they soar through the sky taking advantage of warm air
currents and updrafts to carry themselves along, effortlessly, and with amazing speeds and
accuracy. Their wings trust entirely upon the air to carry them, air which is unseen to the eye,
but positively present as we know.
Therefore, we too can fly like the eagle, but even more so in a much greater way; as we put
our hope in God, Jesus Christ, who sustains us in every way! And though we cannot see Him
now, by faith we believe He is there, most assuredly, as He carries us to eternal life to be
with Him forever! Praise God… Let’s fly!! Christopher W. French
