Those who Hope
in the Lord
will renew their STRENGTH
They will soar on wings like eagles
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.

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!
