The Eagle: What we can learn the eagle (life lessons)?

. Eagles catch the wind drafts of the spirit – they soar high on the wind beneath our wings. Wait on God…then rise on wings like eagles.
“It’s not by might, nor by power, but by God’s Spirit.”

2. Eagles love storms. They use the air pressure of the storm to go high… and this a lesson for all of us. How can I use this obstacle/adversity in my life to go higher?. Look for the storm, but don’t rely on your own strength to get though it. Remember God is with you in the eye of the storm. We will come out of it in a better place than when we into the storm. You will fly higher, as the Holy Spirit gives us the strength to ovecome adversity in our lives.

Eagles go to great lengths to teach their young

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

THE EAGLE
Lessons from an eagle:
1. Eagles catch the wind drafts of the spirit – they soar high on the wind beneath our wings. Wait on God…then rise on wings like eagles.
“It’s not by might, nor by power, but by God’s Spirit.”

2. Eagles love storms. They use the air pressure of the storm to go high… and this a lesson for all of us. How can I use this obstacle/adversity in my life to go higher?. Look for the storm, but don’t rely on your own strength to get though it. Remember God is with you in the eye of the storm. We will come out of it in a better place than when we into the storm. You will fly higher, as the Holy Spirit gives us the strength to ovecome adversity in our lives.
3. Don’t eat dead things, as eagles only eat fresh prey.
Keep off the dead stuff, unlike vultures
Your walk with God needs to be fresh – a new beginning with new revelations. Listen to His? voice!

4. Eagles circle for some time before attacking their prey. Wait for the right time to attack, to launch your product or idea on the market. Then come back with the spoils of victory.
Learn from history – which battles to fight…and which ones to walk away from.

5. Eagles have tremendous vision from up on high.

“Without a vision the people perish.”
– Proverbs

and NB
6. Eagles go to great lengths to teach their young what they’ve learnt: ie. how to fly, they teach and mentor their young well. Share and pass it on – a vital lesson for humankind

Have faith. “Faith is the currency of God.”
Say:
“Lord, I don’t understand what I’m going through, but I trust you in this situation. I know that with You, I’ll come out OK. Like the storm, this too shall pass.”

Author: craig lock

ABOUT c the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. https://www.createspace.com/3779691/ and http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html and http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig-lock Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his lifes savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" (it missed, btw!) and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season." True! The various books* that Craig “felt inspired to write” are available at ebooks (digital books) http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=la_B005GGMAW4_sr?rh=i:books&field-author=Craig+Lock Paperbacks (see https://goldendawnpublishing.wordpress.com/2016/12/20/paperback-writer/ and https://wanttowriteabook.wordpress.com/2013/06/07/paperback-writer-the-beatles/ https://www.createspace.com/pub/simplesitesearch.search.do?sitesearch_query="craig+lock"&sitesearch_type=STORE https://www.amazon.com/Craig-Lock/e/B005GGMAW4/ref=pe_584750_33951330_sr_tc_2_0?qid=1476388259&sr=1-2-ent http://www.creativekiwis.com/index.php/books and http://goo.gl/vTpjk All proceeds go to needy and underprivileged children – MINE! “When the writer is no more , the value of your purchase will soar! “ “Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.” PPS Don’t worry about the world ending today… as it’s already tomorrow in scenic and tranquil ‘little’ New Zealand
