Flying Above The Storm
Did you know that an eagle
knows when a storm is
approaching long before it breaks?
The eagle will fly to some high
spot and wait for the winds to come.
When the storm hits, it sets its wings
so that the wind will pick it up
and lift it high above the storm.
While the storm rages below, the eagle
is soaring high above it, gliding with ease.
The eagle does not escape
the storm, it just simply uses
the storm to lift it higher.
It rises on the winds that
bring the storm into its world.
When the storms of life come upon us --
and all of us will experience them --
we can rise above them by setting our minds and
faith toward God!!!
The storms do not have to overcome us.
We can allow God to lift us above them.
God enables us to ride the winds
of the storm that brings sickness,
pain, tragedy, failure and disappointments
in our lives, and make something good come from it.
We can soar above the storm.
Remember, it is not the
burdens of life which weigh
us down, but it is how we
handle them that counts.
In Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) it reads:
"But they that wait on
the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint."
