"On Eagles Wings"
you know that an eagle knows
when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?
eagle will fly to some high spot
and wait for the winds to come.
the storm hits,
it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up
and lift it above the storm.
the storm rages below,
the eagle is soaring above it.
eagle does not escape the storm.
It simply uses the storm to lift it higher.
rises on the winds that bring the storm.
The storms do not have to overcome us.
We can allow God's power to lift us above them.
enables us to ride the winds of the storm
that bring sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives.
We can soar above the storm.
it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down,
it is how we handle them.
"Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles........"
