Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching, long before
it breaks? The eagle then flies to some high spot & waits for the wind to come.
When the storm hits, it sets it wings so that the wind will pick it up & 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. Similarly when the storm of life comes upon us
& we experience them, we too can rise above them by setting our minds &
belief towards god. We just can not let the storms to overcome us, instead
we can allow god’s power to lift us above them. God enables us to ride the winds
of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure & disappointment in our lives
we can soar above the storm. Remember, it is not the burdens of life that
weigh us down, it is how we handle them.
