We are not where we want to be

I read this story somewhere and thought it made perfect sense.

This is a story of an Eagle. The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species. It can live up to 70 years. But to reach this age, the eagle must make a very difficult decision. In its 40th year, the eagle’s long and flexible Talons can no longer grab a prey which serves as food. Its long and sharp beak becomes bent. Its old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly.

Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE! This process lasts for 150 days (5 months). The process requires the eagle to fly to a mountain top and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back after which it will pluck out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old-aged feathers. And after this, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and LIVES for 30 more years!

And after this, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and LIVES for 30 more years!

Why is this change needed?

In order to survive and live. We too have to start the change process. We sometimes need to get rid of the unpleasant old memories, negative habits and our fixed mindsets. Only Freed from the past burdens can we take advantage of the present. If an eagle can make a life-saving and life-changing decision at the age of 40….why can’t we? In order to take on a New Journey ahead, let go of your negative old limiting beliefs. Open up your mind and let yourself fly high like an eagle! When it rains, all birds occupy shelter. But the EAGLE avoids the rain by flying above the clouds. The problem is common to all but the attitude to solve it makes the difference!

Don’t be afraid of change…accept it gracefully!

So great the father’s love for us…

A lot of times during easter, people tend to focus on the sufferings, pain and humiliation that Jesus had to go through, but I believe we forgot the main point here.

The focus should be on His LOVE for mankind – His creation. It’s love we cannot yet fully comprehend with. For God SO LOVED the world that he gave His ONLY begotten son to die for us on the cross. He did this that we may have redemption from our sins, enjoy the free gift of salvation, and be able to live a guilt-free life of abundance.

Thank God for His love and kindness. Where would we be without that? Ever thought about that?

Are you in want of something?

Today, I have been reminded of one of the most important things that many of us forget with time. A lot of us tend to forget why we are here in this World…Where we are heading out to?…What are we supposed to be doing? We forget the fact that we’re here for a purpose and that God created us for His glory. We are called to shine as light in this dark world.

Do you know what God’s will is for your life? I know I’ve struggled to find out what His will was for my life. The bibles says in Romans 12:2 – “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (NLV).

I don’t think God could have been any more clear on this. We need to allow God to transform us into this new person. Our thinking will be transformed and we no longer seek to acquire the things of this world but rather strive to acquire the things above. In others words, we will no longer be in want of something. This becomes a good checkpoint. When God is your shepherd, you will not be in want (Psalms 23:1).

I know I personally have desires time to time for a nice car or a beautiful house but I am not in need of these things. So the next time, Satan takes you out for a spin and tries to indulge you in worldly pleasure as he did to Jesus (Matthew 4:8-9), rebuke it and set yourselves right before God immediately. Ask God for his divine help and let not the worldly desires get to you. We are here for a purpose so let’s fulfil that and head home.

Let’s obey Him because we love him not because we have to. Be a strong soldier in God’s army. If a soldier loses his determination to win the battle, he has already been defeated in his heart. Let’s not lose our determination. Let’s run the race faithfully till the end and overcome this world just like our father did.
