Life is tough. How do you deal with challenges that come into your life?

Do you feel defeated? Discouraged? Angry? Everyone, even followers of Christ, may at times feel overwhelmed. So, you ask, what are we supposed to do?

Isaiah 40:31 offers a brilliant promise: “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.” But what does this really mean?

It’s God-centered living that gives us hope and supernatural strength. Trusting God allows us to look beyond our circumstances and find rest and renewal in a world of perpetual chaos.

On Sunday, August 25, I begin a new message series: With Wings Like Eagles: Soaring High Above Life’s Challenges. We will look to Scripture for guidance on the different struggles we face and better understand how to live God-centered lives.

If you live in Charlotte, I hope you’ll join us at Calvary for this life-changing study. Or watch live or replay the messages at The most exciting, the most thrilling, the most demanding and awesome of all goals is to know God, and we will be challenged to trust Him more deeply in ways you never thought possible!
