Eagle in a storm
Did you know that an Eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? And you will be amazed to know what Eagle does then?
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 above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.
The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.
In our religious or personal life, when storm come upon us – and all of us will experience them – we can rise above by setting our minds and our beliefs high. The storms does not have to overcome us. We can use our will power copuled with our faith in God to lift us above.
God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above storm. Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle or respond to them.
