    How cool - I have loved that song from the first time I heard it, & now it has even more meaning. I have the verse it is about (Isa 40:31) tatooed on my ankle. It was my "running marathons" verse, and then after getting ME/CFS, it became my "hope for eternity" verse. (As a runner, hiker, and sky diver, the verse really hits me....and I know that one day in heaven I will run, walk, and soar again.)

    Isa 40:31 says, "Those that hope in the Lord will renew their strenth; they will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint."

    Isn't that something - how that turned out. I'm sure that that verse helps you very much in your times of trial. :)

    Thanks for sharing this Cort. I was not familiar with his music but checked it out. He's pretty good, I like his newest cd, Adoration.
