Rising Above the Storm

Everyone experiences “storms” in their life. The outcome of those storms, however, is determined by how you handle them.

Everyone experiences "storms" in their life. The outcome of those storms, however, is determined by how you handle them. The story below explains how an eagle makes the most of a storm.

Eagles And Storms

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come.

When the storm hits, 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 it. The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.

When the storms of life come upon us – and all of us will experience them – we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow God’s power to lift us above them.

God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that brings sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.

Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle them.

Though you may go through many storms in your life, remember that God is always there to help you through them. You can rise above the storm!

Here’s to making the most of the week, and rising above the storm!

One should really prepare for storms with extra blankets, a battery powered radio and bottled water. Unless it's the zombie apocalypse, then all you can do is run like hell.
