Psalm 17:8

Hide yourself in the secret place of My presence, says the Lord. You must stay hidden until the onslaught passes by. I will keep you safe as long as you trust Me to protect you. Let the unction of My Spirit and My still, small voice lead you away from danger and harm. I know where you are at all times. You are the apple of My eye, and I will defend you with My power and might.
Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings.

Eagles’ Wings


“Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.”  
~ Isaiah 40, 30-31.

Lord, we stand with this young man today, we hold him up in his spirit when he is too tired to do it himself.

We ask that You would renew Oscar’s strength today. As he waits for You, We ask that You would strengthen his faith, his emotions, his spirit, his body, that he would know You coursing through his veins, filling his lungs with air, and his legs with strength. We command all weariness of body and mind to leave in Jesus’ name, all despair and defeatism to go, that a spirit of Faith might take their place. Fill him with Your peace, we pray. Help him to stand in the Victory that You won for him when You died in his place. “Place his feet upon a rock”, Lord, that he would be “above only, and not beneath” his circumstances.
In Jesus’ mighty Name, Amen

An amazing quote

Dear Oscar,

I heard an amazing quote today!

‘There are moments in life when you miss someone so much, you just want to pick them up and hug them’

We are all watching the Commonwealth Games and there is something missing – can’t quite put my finger on it…

Whatever you are doing, you are always in our hearts and minds (moreso now) and we miss you champ!! Your warm heart, your huge smile and your awesome personality!

Wishing that one day, when this is over, we will be treated to all of that again!

Always in our thoughts and prayers.

Take it easy darling!
