Have you ever felt as though you were about to break? Maybe you feel as though you are alone in all your troubles. As we can see the birds flying in the air,what happens when they have a broken wing? They cannot fly,and if they cannot fly,they are open to all the preditors around them. We too can feel as though our wings are broken. If we are feeling alone, someone is giving us negative words,if we have lost our job,or our family is torn apart,we can be so hurt,that we cannot soar any longer. I have felt like one of those birds that may have a broken wing. I have felt that I was all alone with no one to turn too. As we want to fly so badly,things and situations can come into our lives and we feel as though our wings have been clipped. We don't have to feel that way. When we get down and lose ourselves in our pain,its hard to get back up,but with God we can. He will help our wings heal, and be back flying if we put our faith and trust in Him. In Ecclesiates 4:12 it states; "Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken." This is a powerful verse about friendship and God's love. We don't have to be that one cord standing alone.We can go to our christian friends for help,for advice,and for prayer.They can lift us up. More importantly we can go straight to Christ. He is that third cord. Just as in our marriage of a man and a woman,together we are strong,but you add in that third cord(Christ) and it cannot be broken. Just as friendship adds to our healing,God right there in the middle of us,can give us a strength that we have never known. We can also look at Isaiah 61:1 for help. It says; "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives,and the opening of the prison to those who are bound." This verse lets us have hope. It allows us to see that Jesus can heal the brokenhearted,those who cannot fly. He can free us from our pain and hurts with His love. We must not allow satan to keep us in chains. Christ can free us from all that hurts. One of my favorite verses is Isaiah 40:31,"But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength;they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary,they shall walk and not faint." We can hope in the Lord,and be renewed by His power. I love this verse,as I love to watch eagles, they were easy to see where I grew up. I would watch them for hours,thinking how wonderful it would feel to be so free and being able to fly. As a christian now, I understand the beauty of the eagle and what it stands for. It stands for the strength of God in us.It shows the picture of how our lives can be if we only put our faith and trust in God. If we do, we too can soar like the eagles. Place your broken wings at the Lord's feet today,give Him all that weighs you down,gather His strength, allow Him to heal your wings, so you too can soar with all the love that He has given.
