Soar with the Eagles

Are you a chicken or an eagle?

Have you ever seen an eagle soaring through the sky, high above the tree tops, so fearlessly, like all is well and life is great? Well sometimes that's exactly what we need to do. Even when we are flat on our faces and feel like we just want to crawl into a hole and stay there, we should uplift ourselves with positivity and soar like an eagle.
Encouraging ourselves when we are down is one of the HARDEST things to do because we're sad, hurt, depressed, overwhelmed, cried out and the list goes on and on and on but does this mean that we should pity ourselves and give up? No, it just means that we need to pour our hearts out to God and ask him to take over. Sometimes we need to let go and let God.
How many times have you cried until you felt sick? How many times have you cried yourself to sleep and soaked your pillow with tears? How many times have you opened your eyes in the morning and wished everything was just a bad dream? How many times have you gone to sleep feeling that you just can't take anymore?................but aren't you still standing?
God comforts us in times of distress. He encourages us in Isaiah. Isaiah 40:11 says that "He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Verse 29-31 says that "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tires and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint"
In this life, all kind of things are going to come against us but we need to fight back. People who you thought were your friends will hurt you. Mean things will be said about you. You will be rejected. You will be emotionally bruised and broken but you will NOT die.
The devil will try to overpower your mind with negative thoughts to keep you in the hole that you're in. He's a liar, a joy killer, a dream killer and a disturber of peace. He does NOT mean anyone good. Take your life back, RECLAIM your joy, reclaim your smile, reclaim your life, reclaim your peace. Surround yourself with positive people, encouraging people. Find something to give thanks for every day and think about where God is taking you. It is not his will for any of us to suffer but he knows that in this life, we will.
Today, reclaim your life, your joy, your smile, your peace. Speak to the devil and let him know that he will NOT have victory over your life. Continue to soar like the eagles. The only similarity that eagles and chickens have is that they both belong to the bird family.
Eagles are not meant to fly with pigeons and chickens because their flying altitude is too low. Today, take your rightful place as an Eagle and leave the pigeons and chickens behind.
