They that wait upon the Lord


Gandalf escapes Isengard

“Why do you complain, Jacob?
Why do you say, Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord;
my cause is disregarded by my God”?
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.
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.”
– Isaiah 40:27-31

Point: Don’t let the bad news and evil reports get you down. If you put your trust in the Lord, and hope in Him, He will give you rest, and renew your strength. If you don’t know God, then I urge you to stop whatever you are doing, and commit your life to Jesus, who gave His life on the cross to pay the price for your sins. He will receive you, and give you rest.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
– John 3:16

Yet knowing the Big Picture re the NWO (& watching the purposeful orchestration of it unfold) allows me to laugh just as often. I give credit for that to the Lord who not only opens our eyes to the who/what/why re these things, but lets us see the humorous foolishness of it all just as He does, & that He holds the conclusion of it… Read more »

Thank you for this lovely reminder, TD. Most people who saw the Lord of the Rings movies don’t know this: The “wizard” (or Istari) Gandalf is really a Maiar, whom JRR Tolkien in a letter identified as “the near equivalent” of a guardian angel. Gandalf was one of 5 Maiar sent to Middle-earth as emissaries in the incarnate form of old men “to strengthen the resistance of the ‘good’” against Sauron, who himself was a fallen angel, i.e., a demon. The Istari’s mission is not to directly fight Sauron themselves, but to assist those who oppose evil —- elves, men… Read more »

I think you need to tell your readers the origin of the (your) name, Eowyn 🙂
