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 Jesus.
The storms do not have to overcome us. 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, and disappointment into 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. The Bible says, "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on the wings like eagles." Isaiah 40:31.

Joyce, it was wonderful to be reminded of this. Yes, the storms should lift us higher, and higher, and higher. Praise God for His blessings and comfort and for being there for us through the storms. God bless you for sharing. Thomas
I really love to watch Eagles as they dip and sway while being carried on the wings of the wind. You may know the song, "On Eagles Wings". "And He will raise you up on Eagles wings..."
It is beautiful!
