Birds have 3 methods of flying, first is flapping keeping their wings in constant motion to counteract gravity. Flapping keeps u in the air, but takes alot of work.
Second method is gliding. Birds build enough speed, than coasts downward awhile, its much more graceful than flapping. But it does not get the bird very far. Reality in the form of gravity sets in. Gliding is nice but it does not last.

The last method is soaring. Only a few birds like eagles are capable of this. Their wings are so strong that they are capable of catching rising currents of warm air and without moving a feather soar up to great heights...

Isaiah 40:31
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They WILL SOAR on wings like eagles; they WILL run and not grow weary, they WILL walk and not be faint.

Whats hope? Hope is trusting God's power to deliver, having faith that HIS Word is truth. Isiah is so confident he mention WILL x 3

I was so confident my spiritual life was gliding, I believe I can do better thus not saying its soaring but the holy Spirit corrected me. I'm still flapping and flapping like a humming bird. 70 flaps per sec. Flapping with my own strength, own power, own will. Yes we are to be intentional to be discipline in living blameless life but its not by ANY of this that I am righteous, going to church dun make me more spiritual.

To relate that to a challenge in life, eg. living life set apart for God or your partner, its nt by JUST yr own discipline that keeps that walk possible. It takes grace, DAILY surrender, transformation. And mainly the holy Spirit to tutor, guide and encourage.

Its time ladies and gentleman, to catch a gust of the spirit, to keep us soaring. In times of disappointment and weakness to soar and not glide or flap, sometimes we just need to be Still and hope... please note ... I said SOMETIMES :)
