Before Christmas I wrote about Jesus being the author and finisher of our faith.
I wrote about his nail scarred hands writing and turning the pages of the Bible, the book he inspired.

Sometimes you will run, sometimes you will walk, sometimes you will stumble and fall, and sometimes, you will rise on the wings of an eagle. Those are the best times, when you can stop running, wing it and see what the eagle sees.
