Did you know what an eagle does when a storm is approaching? The eagle will fly to a high area and wait for the winds to come. When the storm breaks, 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. The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher.
When the storms of life come upon us, we can rise above them. Let the winds that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and disappointment into our life lift us higher.
