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 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.
The Bible says, “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They
will soar on wings like eagles.” Isaiah 40:31
“I live by this credo: Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations. Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something to
laugh about if you try hard enough.” — Red Skelton (1913-1997)
A person’s character can be measured by the way he treats people who can do
him absolutely no good.
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and the
wrong…because sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.
“Wherever you go, whomever you meet, look for an opportunity to help, to
inspire, to lend support.”
