Soar Above the Storm

The Eagle is a creation of God. It is the most majestic of all birds. An eagle is around 90 cm tall and reaches over 2 m between the wings. She builds her nest on the cliff or in a high tree. The nest is so large that a human can sleep in it. It can weigh 700 kg and is also comfortable. Eagles do not fly like other birds, flapping their wings profusely and using their own strength. Instead, eagles SOAR majestically, making use of the wind currents to gain height. There is a special up going wind where the eagle rides the wind and circle higher and higher toward the sky, without effort. She just spreads her wings. 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 a goal. If we set our mind above the storm it will enable us to ride the winds of the storm that brings sickness, tragedies, failures and disappointments 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.
