Above The Storms

“Those who wait upon the Lord shall mount up with wings as a mighty eagle” (Isaiah 40:31)

Above The Storm

I read that the Palestinian Eagle is the only bird in the world that is not afraid of thunderstorm. He goes thru the wind and finds rest in the eye of the storm. Then again passes thru the winds and goes above the storm, higher than ever before. From that height the eagle can see the earth, people and other birds running away from the storm, afraid of it. But for the eagle, that height is free from fear. No other bird goes thru the storm to that height. Strong currents that help the eagle go up, are the very ones that bring the other birds down.

I also read that the baby eagle is the most difficult bird to train to fly. The eagle mother is very patient and wise to stir the nest and teach her baby to fly. One reason is that the eagle nest is very high. A young sparrow, for example, can fall from her nest and not die because it is not too high. But for the eagle, any mistake in leaving the nest and trying to fly, it means death. In other words, for the eagle, he either flies or dies. Spiritually speaking, it is either heaven or hell.
