REAL POWER: MAXING OUT ON GOD'S LOVE
THE WORLD NEEDS EAGLES
Eagles make people uncomfortable
because they donít know how to deal with them. People criticize you
if you leave your medical practice and sail around the world on a
yacht. Critics say you should be making the world a better place by
practicing your profession. They feel that you should make a larger
contribution to society, and they decide what the contribution should
be. Few people understand that sailing around the world on a yacht
might be eagle-like behavior. The world needs a few eagles to point
out itís still possible to soar through life.
DONíT JUST LOOK LIKE AN EAGLE
Just because you are sailing around
the world on a yacht doesnít mean you are an eagle. Appearances can
be deceiving. There are lots of pretend eagles out there carrying a
backpack full of burdens that weigh them down, and they couldnít get
airborne if they tried. Too many of them are into acquisitions, and
their yacht is an extension of an image-oriented lifestyle. When they
go sailing, they are making a fashion statement. They are constantly
looking over their shoulder to see who is watching, and they never get
airborne and fly.
True eagles place a high value on
their freedom. They are not burdened with acquisitions. They travel
light and travel far. Their yacht is not a fashion statement used to
project an image of wealth and achievement. Their yacht is their
plumage that lifts them high in the sky so they can enjoy the freedom
of flight. Most eagles are not wealthy in financial terms. However,
they are wealthy in the richness of their life.
Eagles survive by their wits, and
they enjoy their freedom to soar. If they didnít enjoy it, they
wouldnít be doing it so much of the time. No one makes them leave
their perch and rise high into the sky riding the updrafts as they
soar. They can sit on branches any time they want and watch the world
go by. When eagles are given the choice between sitting and soaring,
they almost always choose to soar.
DONíT LET THE WORLD COMPRESS YOU INTO
When I was forty-six years old, I
made my choice. It was time to fly like an eagle. Soaring makes me
feel alive. When I stopped practicing medicine and started sailing
around the world on my yacht, my spirit spread its wings and began to
soar. When I am out on the ocean and in tune with the rhythms of
nature, I feel my spirit soar within.
Every time society comes to me with a
load of negativity and limitations, I know why they are there. They
are trying to clip my wings and keep my feet on the ground. When the
world pops me into its mold, I never come out of the mold as an eagle
with the ability to fly. I emerge earthbound with wings of lead.
GOD DESIGNED YOU TO FLY LIKE AN EAGLE
God gave you the heart and wings of
an eagle. You were designed for flight, and soaring is your domain.
If you donít load yourself up with burdens, you can soar for your
The Bible says, ďThey that wait upon
the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings
as eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and
shall not faint.Ē
During most of your life, you should
be flying like an eagle. Nevertheless, on some days, troubles will
come, and conditions will not be favorable for soaring. On those
days, you will run and not be weary. At other times, adversity will
be great, and you will walk and will not faint. That is the promise
The choice is yours. You can sit in
a not-so-golden cage with wings of lead, or you can soar on the
updrafts of Godís love. Itís time to shed your wings of lead and
discover how good your life can become when you spread your wings and
fly like an eagle.
God gave me the heart and wings of an eagle. When I see an eagle in
flight, I see my life as it was meant to be. I will not allow myself
to be grounded by negativity and limitation. I will mount up on wings
and fly like an eagle. I will run and not be weary. I will walk and
will not faint. There is no limit to how good my life can become when
I spread my wings and soar on the updrafts of Godís love.
