God speaks to me a lot of times through birds. So I have to share with you about the eagles he sent to me in my back yard, on the mountain. I can see them perfectly from my porch. The pair of eagles come make their nest, lay eggs, babies hatch, parents feed them and take care of them. They get bigger and bigger the same size as their parents. They start to stand on the nest and flap their wings and get strong. Parents continue to feed them and take care of them. It’s time for them to leave the nest. Here is where I’ll start my story.
We think these creatures are so majestic and we always refer to them as strong, in control awesome symbols. They start out helpless and need guidance and nurturing just like we do. They are content to stay in the nest and wait for their parents to come and feed them. They don’t worry about anything because their parents take good care of them. But then they start getting restless, and when the parents aren’t there when they need them they start squawking and then more squawking. And before you know it that’s all they do, all day long.
I watched and timed it one day and it was every couple of minutes. Quite annoying I may say. They want to leave but they are afraid. They are in a place where their not happy staying, but are afraid to take that leap and fly. Then one day they get enough courage to leap and fly. The parents are there every step of the way. But the eaglets come back to the nest over and over again, squawking and squawking and more squawking, because the parents leave them more and more. They don’t realize that they are strong capable creatures, they can’t see how they will soar and take control of their lives. So for at least a month straight they continue to be a pest and squawk and bug their parents to take care of them. Till one day they finally get it, take control of their lives and become the majestic creature God intended them to be.
We are all like the eaglets. We have to go through the motions to become strong and independent. To become the creatures we were intended to be. Just don’t be in that annoying stage for your whole life where you’re afraid to take the leap and soar. Or take the leap a few times only to come back over and over and continue to squawk for help from your parents or from anyone that will hear you and try to help you. Be the eaglet that finally soars and becomes the eagle you’re suppose to be.
Become the eagle. You have the power. Take control. Have a great day! Blessings 🙂
