I have considered making the switch to wordpress for awhile – blogger kind of makes me crazy. So, with the switch, I decided to change the title of our blog. While The Swinigan Daily Drama, still fits our life as a homeschooling family with three girls, that is not what I want our focus or legacy to be. Click on the title of this post to read the article and you will know exactly why I chose this title for our blog. The link will take you to one commentary of my favorite Bible verse – Isaiah 40:31. The image of the eagle in flight is powerful and breathtaking.
If you scroll partway down, you will read, “Bottom line – if we do not have enough faith and belief in God to take flight on the Holy Spirit in order to be led and empowered by Him for service to the Lord, then nothing will ever happen. We will forever stay perched, and we will never fulfill the divine destiny that God has already planned out for our lives before we were even born into our mother’s womb.
The eagle has to take that big leap off the edge of the cliff in order to be able to fly and soar on those wind thermals. If the eagle does not take flight on those wind thermals when they do come up on him, he will forever stay perched and he will die on the cliff due to starvation.
In the same way, if we do not take flight on the Holy Spirit and the divine call that God has placed on our lives, our lives will perish right before our very eyes, as the Bible tells us that God’s people will perish without having His specific vision for their lives.”
Kevin and I desire for our family to have faith and “take flight” or “step out of the boat (Matthew 14:22-36).” We don’t want to sit back and only hear about God’s work in someone else’s life. We want to experience God’s work in our lives. We want to be eye-witnesses to the miracles.
Scroll further down in the article and you will read “the eagle is very bold, courageous, and powerful.” I don’t know about you, but I am not the most adventurous person. Honestly, it is easier to stay on the mountain or in the boat. I pray that through the power of the Holy Spirit, I will be bold, courageous, and powerful to do all that God calls us to do. I pray the through His power, we will TAKE FLIGHT AND SOAR!
