images“An eagle know’s when a storm is approaching long before it breaks. For he 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. As 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.”

And like the eagle when the storms of our life comes to us, we too can rise above it, by enduring and setting our sight toward our heavenly Father because only our faith will enable us to ride out the winds that bring about the disappointments of life in a world where Satan’s only goal is to destroy our faith which then causes us to lose focus on the grace and mercy of a God who gave it all for us on Calvary.

But it is at this time in our life when we have to weather the storm, in knowing, that peace, and hope, does not come when the storm becomes calm, and the temperus waves subsides enough for us to say. “If it was not for the Lord on my side where would we be.” But real peace, and hope, comes when in the middle of the storm, and when the raging waves seems to be taking control of our life, we can find rest in the loving arms of Jesus, as we face the storm head on, and rise above it, knowing that our God is always there.

The Bible says, “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.” Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV) Also in Joshua 1:9 (JKV) it tells us “Have I Caught in the Stormcommanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” But we must be willing as his Children to say, God, I can’t figure out what is happening in my life.

So i’m just going to trust You to give me a vision of hope that will allow me to rest in your arms as I ride out this storm, and no matter what happens in my life, if I remained focused on your saving grace, and endure while knowing that God is allowing this storm in my life, only to prepare me for the next storm, that I am not quite ready for right now. Then victory and Eternal life is mine.

So today MY FRIENDS, MY FAITH AND GOD’S WORD TELLS ME TO HOLD ON “THIS TO SHALL PASS”!!!  As I rest in the loving arms of Jesus and each day, as my faith is strengthened. My God will complete what he has started in each of us. For in Phil 1:6 (NKJV) Paul tells us being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

wSo friends today, just accept God’s plan for your life as you rest in his presence while allowing the storms of life to prepare your Character for eternity. And then and only then can we experience total peace and happiness as the storm rages on, because “the Master knows the tempest is raging! He knows the billows are tossing high! And the sky is over shadowed with blackness in our life. But we must continue to have faith in knowing that the winds and storms will obey His will as we rest on the blissful shore in our Saviors loving arms.”

So let’s wait  and “endure while developing strength of character, as our character strengthens our confidence  and hope” in knowing one day our “God will wipe away every tear from [our] eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain.., for the former things [will] passed away.” And he who [is] seated on the throne [will say], Rev. 21:4 (ESV) Well done, good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” Matthew 25:21(ESV)


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
