Some of us love to read books. Stories of lives that were changed, comedy and real life situations. Yet, there is one book that often seems to sit on a shelf and not be open as much. It is called the Bible and full of stories of victories and sorrows. God shows us how surrender to him changes our lives and we have free will to enter a new day.
ISAIAH 40:31 talks about soaring on wings like eagles, run and not grow weary, walk and not be faint.
The Eagle is known to be strong and powerful. Each of us can relate to situations in our lives that make us feel a little done at times. Tired of what we face and needing that added strength. We might look for a book that brings hope, encouragement or maybe a story of fiction, comedy that takes us away.
Each of us have stories and my life is not different than yours. Born on a certain day and growing up inside a home that brings us to our own story. A story of hope to some and a life changing experiences on a daily bases. Each day is filled with change. Where I live, we don't usually experience hot weather and rain on the same day. It is expected to be 90 degrees today with thunder storms. That is not a normal for here and I'm not a fan of thunder/lightening. Just hearing this day of weather coming, it brings a slight wonder to my brain. It's not just the weather, but the wonder of what today will bring.
I have learned to trust the Lord in all things. It takes me stopping and starting my brain again. God is big enough to create us and big enough to keep us safe. To fly high above the storm of weather or high above the storms of life. Each day is faced with God and the hope of this new day. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. The word of God has stories and lives that were changed forever. Go ahead, pick up the Bible today and read. It also can plant hope inside your heart and courage that you might not know you have in life.
Down deep inside of you is a want of something. Maybe a want of a better life, a want of a changed circumstance that makes you feel low in life, but I can honestly tell you, that at my lowest time so life, I cried out to God. A God who I knew would change things, but I had to change my own thinking too. I have to become closer to him and allow him freedom to change me. Yes, I have learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart and I've learned to lean not to my own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
