Eagles in a 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 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.
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 our belief toward God. The storms do not have to
overcome us. We can allow God's power 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 the storm.
Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is
how we handle them.

storm. Click on link below:
