Ethiopian Airline #501 at B gate 41 Dulles Airport, DC

One missionary to Tanzania repeatedly advised me not to take the Ethiopian Airline. Reason? The prices are cheap but services are cheap also. Plus they have a good record of airpnane crashes. They are accidents and incidents prone. Click here for the infor.

Yet here I am at the IAD (airport at the Washington DC) ready to board the Ethiopian Air bound for Uganda (to attend the opening ceremony of the Bethesta Medical Mission Hospital at Kampala) feeling weary and weak (not just for my tooth pain).
Does the Lord have a remedy for this sort of weariness and weakness?
Yes he does. In Isaiah 40:28-31 it is written: [28] Do you not know?Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God,the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. [29] He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. [30] Even youths grow tired and weary,and young men stumble and fall; [31] but those who hope in the Lordwill renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,they will walk and not be faint.

Verse 31 represents "the" resurrection message of resurrection messages (in my opinion). Being subject to gravity and carrying a body made of dust even youths grow weary and weak.
I am in my 60's and I see this being the case in an increasing measure. Yet how is it that a man even soars into the sky? What does it mean to soar riding on wings like eagles? What are the wings made of? Who with what sort of body is capable of running even at God's speed and yet NOT grow weary?
Do you need a hint? - "Those who hope in the Lord" You've guessed it right! A man with a resurrexted body. (Romans 8:24) Now I boarded the Ethiopean Air and ready to go up into the air.
Have a nice day.
