Cheesy Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe
Have you ever heard the story about the eagle and the chicken? A baby eagle somehow gets separated from his parents and a farmer takes him in to live with his chickens. He grows up thinking he is a chicken so naturally he does what chickens do. He squabbled and fought over seeds, he pecked at the ground for food, and he followed the crowd of other chickens never questioning where they may be heading. Then one day he looks up and sees a beautiful eagle soaring through the sky and asks a chicken what it was. The chicken told him “that is an eagle but you don’t need to concern yourself with that because you are chicken and you will never be able to fly like that”. Sadly the eagle died believing he was a chicken.
I think God intended us to be like the eagle. The eagle is built to soar above all the nonsense and clacking of the chickens below. Did you know eagles will fly directly into a violent storm and at just the right moment use the storm to fly higher and then ultimately ABOVE it? They were built to withstand storms. When adversity hits don’t cluck and make a lot of noise, see what you can learn from the storm and soar higher!
Are you an eagle and hang out with the chickens? Be careful before you know it you will start to cluck and squabble just like a chicken.
If you are an eagle, hang out with other eagles! They are the ones that you will learn from, that you will admire, that will cheer you on and be in your corner. Take stock (no pun intended) of your friends, any chickens? Before writing this, I did some research on eagles, did you know eagles mate in the air? If you think about it, this would make it impossible for them to mate with a chicken! Mother eagles will stir up their babies’ nests when they are strong enough to fly. This makes things just a bit uncomfortable for the baby eagles. I think God does the same to us. Sometimes when he sees us hanging out with chickens he may put the pressure on for us to leave the nest and fly elsewhere. Don’t try to change the chicken, besides, the chickens can’t go where eagles go.
I will end with this quote I heard. “If someone rejected you- it was probably a chicken.”
They say rejection is one of the most painful emotions humans experience. If you would like to read my post on rejection click here.
