Life is about change and seasons in our lives. The season of the unknown happens to each of us. Our strength must be build on the word of God and the promises within it.
EAGLE ~ wings to fly and he knows to fly high above it all. Other birds take shelter, but he is the only one who flies above the storm. I want to be like the Eagle who knows to go up, when it spread it's wings and when to return to land.
BE LIKE THE EAGLE ~
There is something inside the Eagle that tells him to fly high
THE BIBLE ~ YOU CAN FLY
Isaiah 41:10-13 New International Version (NIV)
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 “All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.
I AM HUMAN ~ I WILL TRUST GOD
Verse 13 above, "For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
Do not fear, I will help you".
I am not saying life is easy and everything will work out the way you want, but I am saying that God leads us in ways we might not understand. Casting down the whys of life and just trusting him through it all. Even the worst storm of your life, can bring life. It was in the 1980's when we lost our house, our car, our dog and my brother died on Christmas Day. My life seemed out of control and anger began to fill my heart. The question of WHY GOD just appeared more than I would like to admit to you. It took time to process all the changes and trust God again. But I did and I can look back to see how one of worst things in life, brought me to write and share stories of hope with you.
I don't know who reads this blog, but God does. I don't know your situation of life, but God does. I believe that He brought you to this blog for purpose. To reach out a little more and know that someone understands a storm of life. The pain is just too much and you need to hear one story of hope. One life that was changed through pain and moving forward. I am a life that was changed. Through my deepest grief of family loss, I found peace in the middle of it all. But it took time.
I had to fly high above the storm inside my head and lean not to my own understanding. A young woman who felt lost, still needed to take care of two children and a husband. I had a grieving mother and I choose to become stronger and not bitter. I have experiences deep hurts, sorrows and loss. I have experiences miracles, joys and happiness. Mixed together I became Sparkie and I would not change one thing in my life or I would be who I am today.
Daily I pray for the readers of my blog. For your life, your families and your friends. Only God knows somethings and he wants you to feel peace in your life too. Flying high above your storm and he cares. Reaching through the clouds of doubt and knowing that God is the source of strength beyond a human understanding. I just trust you God and will fly with you!
Readers, I know it's not easy to fly above you situations but a deep breathe helps! Your choices matter what you think upon today and it is so important to take care of you. Thank you for taking time to read this, plant hope and know that someone cares. For those who are flying high already, then pass this onto to someone who needs encouragement today. God creates a new day for purpose and I know that the joy of the lord is our strengthen. Praying joy for all who reads this.
