Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

When You're Knocked Down and You Know You're Supposed to Fly









You know those days 
when you feel like the dark-eyed junco that flew into your window 
and knocked herself right down into the mud brownies 
that some little blond girl left on the table.

You sit there for a while and rest.

You gain your strength.

You wait.

Finally, you mount up on wings and fly.


And you keep on rejoicing.





"He gives power to the faint,
    and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
    and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
    they shall walk and not faint."
Isaiah 40:29-31
