Wings like Eagles!

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. Isaiah 40:31

Good morning. One of my friends shared this wonderful message which I wanted to share today. If you feel like you’ve lost your hope, then this message is for you. So please read this without skipping lines.

The Eagle can live up to 70 years. But to reach this age, the eagle must make a hard decision. In its 40th year its long and flexible talons can no longer grab 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 & make it difficult to fly.

Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE which lasts 150 days. The process requires that the eagle 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 a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out its talons. When its new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old-aged feathers. And after 5 months, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and lives for 30 more years.


What do you understand from the life of Eagles? It’s not easy for an eagle to live till 70 long years with the same strength it has when it is young until it undergoes some painful months. Are you in such a situation? Remember the Lord doesn’t want you to die due to lack of strength, but He teaches you today that you may soar up again. You’ll have to regain the strength you had before.

Unless the eagle strikes its beak and plucks its feather it can no longer fly at all. Similarly unless you and I don’t pass through the valleys of difficulties, we’ll not understand the mighty power of the hands of God in our lives. All things will work together for good. Your tears will be wiped off. Your mourning will be turned to joy! But when & how?

1.   Be patient in times of struggles and be assured that God the Lord is with you wherever you go! His presence will never leave you. In fact during these tough times it’s not you who walk, it is the Lord who carries you on his shoulder.
2.   Strike your beak against the rock. You cannot escape from temptations unless you hate it. If you love it, then there is no way to come out of it. The sin it leads to, is really cheap. Make efforts continually to preserve your relationship with God by not giving a chance to sin. It’s not easy, I know. But it’s achievable through Him as Bible says; we can do all things through Him who strengthens us.
3.   Pluck out your old feathers. When you really prepare your mind not to sin against God as Joseph did, you’re ready for the battle. Start plucking out your dark areas one by one with the renewed beak. Sometimes it hurts. But the end is very near; you’re going to have the beautiful fresh feathers which will take you to heights no matter how forceful the storms in your life are!

If you have ‘I will sing’ album of Don Moen, please listen 12th song “Like eagles.” There is another song ‘Everlasting God’ which says ‘Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord’. I heard it in NLAG worship. They convey the same message. You’ll enjoy!

May God bless!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
