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 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 ~
