Have you ever been wounded and your ability to fly was compromised? Good news, you can fly again and soar to great altitudes. Wounded wings do heal. A painful circumstance may make it hard to thrust your wings but know that your ability to soar can be restored. It takes strength and commitment to heal.
But those who hope in the lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
An eagle is a majestic creature – bold, resilient, and peaceful. It is innate for eagles to fly; therefore, when wounded they do not abandon their purpose. They wait a period for healing to take place, then explore the sky once more.
The sky possesses limitless possibilities. Venture out of the nest and flap your wings again, again! As many times it takes until the desirable altitude is reached. When an eagle takes flight, gravity and strong muscles are used to thrust forward into the sky. You may ask how is this even possible when I am recovering from a wound? God renews strength! He can provide you with confidence to reclaim your ability to soar above and beyond any circumstance in life.
In a metaphorical sense, like an eagle, you too can take ownership of the sky. You might have to fly alone or rest from time to time. But the moral is, healing is a process but do not give up on flying. When healed, be brave; leave your worries on the ground. Your vantage point will be exceedingly higher because you chose to explore new heights and nurture your destiny.
Meditate on this: Protect your beliefs and embrace your fear, for greatness only comes when you preserve. Keep your eyes to the sky!
