LEARNING TO SOAR

Good Morning!

Those who Hope

in the Lord

will renew their STRENGTH

They will soar on wings like eagles

Isa 40:31

4 Soaring bird at Tin Can Bay, 21 June 2009

At the beginning of a new week a couple of things for us to think about.     Are you bombarded at times by all the often ‘awful’ stuff in the world around us?  As human beings we are not simply flesh and blood and bones, we are also spirit. (some like to call it soul) I have come to believe through my life journey that there is a subtle difference.   If we are made in the image of God (God is Spirit) then we too have an inbuilt spiritual essence.    Learning to soar is simply taking the time to breathe in and out, to find a space of absolute solitude, looking always  for beauty but in prayer (for those who believe) it is possible to focus indeed on the ‘things which are above’ and not the things of the earth. Living from a heavenly perspective makes the things of the earth seem so sadly futile.

We must LIVE on this earth.  Be a LIGHT in darkness BUT do our main living’ within and our focus above.  This applies so much when someone we love is suffering……… our source of Comfort must come from a higher place than our own abilities.  We must learn to SOAR. Our Bible is our handbook but the Presence of Christ within is our Guide/companion always.

                                                       When the human soul has laid down its faults

                                                       at the feet of God – ie at the FOOT OF THE CROSS.

                                                        It feels as though it indeed has wings. 

Eugenie De Guerin

This week take a little time to soar………….. Be free from the earthly shackles so you can more effectively be the COMFORT AND SUPPORT for others in His Name.

Blessings and Grace!

 

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
