Soaring with You poem © Michelle Sherlock 2014

Light as a feather

I float with You


Held secure in Your embrace

Soaring high

Above the storm

Dark clouds


Deep valleys

Far below


Lifted up

Beyond the mountain top

A heavenly vista

Stretches before me

Far above life’s

Trouble and strife


One with You I soar

A love song

Set free to worship

In spirit and in truth

I soar with You

Flying high

“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength.  They will soar high on wings like eagles.  They will run and not grow weary.  They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (NLT)

  1. This was my grandmother’s favorite verse. In 2005, When I visited her at her workplace of many years (since retired) a young eagle came and sat on a pole just outside her old desk window. She had a living breathing relationship with God, a prayer life. Lived to be 100 living in her own home.
    Thanks for this post and loving reminder of my Lanakila.
