Similarly, as Christians, we should not work so hard flapping our wings, but give our burdens to God who will "raise us up on eagle's wings". After we listened to Pastor Jeff, Mrs. Mann had us sing a song with the line "soar like an eagle". I guess God was trying to tell me something. All weekend long, I had felt like I was flapping my wings. I was reminded that if I give it up to God, he will help me rise above my troubles.
Today I learned that eagles are the only bird to actually fly directly into the eye of a storm. They use the powerful winds to raise them up above the clouds where they can ride out the storm. They're not only strong creatures, but also intelligent. So, the next time you are facing a storm, use God's love to raise you above the turbulence. He wants you to soar like the eagle.
