They shall run and not get tired


As I prepared the video for Wings like Eagles, I looked for familiar images of high profile Christians who openly profess their faith in Christ. The challenge was to find images of Christians whose lives reflected their testimonies as they overcame obstacles. In my mind I saw Allyson Felix crossing the finish line to win the Gold Medal several weeks ago. Her victory had special meaning for me and many, many members of Baldwin Hills Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California because we watched her grow up. Over the years, we watched her running the race, overcoming obstacles, speaking and acting with humility, and pressing on toward the prize.


"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 fain

Words and Lyrics G. Diane Nelson Trotter


Wings Like Eagles



I walk by faith with You each day. You help me face like along the way.


When my faith in You is not enough, Lord I need You to lift me up.


Lord give me wings like eagles. Help me rise above this misery.


Lord give me wings like eagles. Lord give me the victory.



Who’s going help me. Nobody but You. Nobody but You.


Lord I’m depending on You to lift me up and fill my cup.


Lord give me wings like eagles. Help me rise above this misery.


Lord give me wings like eagles. Lord give me the victory.



So I can run and not get tired, walk and not get weary,


Gain new strength … Lord give me the victory.


Lord, give me the victory
