There and three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.
There are many mysteries in life.
One being God! The one that is both knowable and unknowable.
Although I do not know him absolutely I can know him relationally to things that pertain to me and the world that I live in.
God made me and HE designed me to soar.
What does the eagle and I have in common?
The Lord provides the under current for the eagle’s wings and HE provides the very Spirit and breath to lift me above all of my problems and maps me a course around my enemies.
To make an enemy of someone it has to start in our heads and heart. I don’t know about you but I don’t spend time in prayer and reading the Word daily to come away with’ snake thinking‘!!
A snake slithers, and withers around in the dust on the ground.
Hiding in the grass and looking for an opportunity to strike!
Is this what you want?
The Spirit of GOD does not make enemies out of anyone but loves and goes about walking out his or her God given purpose in the face of obstacles and traps that the enemy tries to set-up!
Learning how to stay focused on what is most important in all situations is… glorifying GOD and believing HIS Word is what building eagle status in the Kingdom of GOD is all about!
Flying higher and higher!!!
Yes, there are times when feeling tossed about as a ship on the high seas is likely to happen while on this God given mysterious journey.
And when you dare to exclaim “Lord, GOD, Jesus
… I want to dedicate myself back to YOU for your Glory honor and praise buckle your seat-belt because life as you know it is going bye-bye!! But even in this being tossed to and fro offers a deeper opportunity to trust and depend on Jesus Christ.
Love, sweet love can bring forth strength we never knew we had.
God as it relates to HIS children will die on a cross for their sins and a man as it relates to his wife, a mother as it relates to her children can often do things she never imagined possible and
Ladies don’t get made at your man for putting you and your relationship and alone time with him a bit before the kids.
But wait… Before you stone me let me try and explain:-)
The best way to ensure security for your children emotionally and spiritually is for you and your husband to have a solid relationship meaning spending time with him minus the kids. But this only works when the relationship is deeply grounded in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Okay, lets get real.. What is eros (sexual love) with our agape (Godly and unconditional love)? Selfishness and lusting in most cases
But, then what is agape love in marriage without eros?
I won’t answer that one directly.. I’ll let you fill in that blank (wink- wink)!!!
A man built by God’s Holy Design is at his best when he is afforded the opportunity to bring forth his God given qualities to provide for and be the spiritual covering for his wife! Women don’t totally rob your man of this functioning in your lives by doing so, you would be missing and rejecting the best part of what GOD has given him to give to you:-)
Men need respect, and physical affection and women need emotional and physical security and need to know that they are love unconditionally before they blossom.
Deep down I think all men want to be a knight in shinning armor for his wife at least once or twice in the lifetime of their marriage!
Thought For Today…..
Don’t make an enemy of your problems they can be used as opportunities for deeper growth, if you submit to GOD and let HIM direct your thinking on the topic. Just know that thinking that goes counter to GOD is what the bible calls the flesh and that is enmity with GOD!
Negative perceptions can actually make one unwell.
Keep those thought straight according to God’s Word!!!!
Psalm 92:5 NKJV
“O Lord, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep.”
