Eagle at Sunrise

“You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself” (Exodus 19:4, NIV)

Here is a place.

An experience.

An image used to describe the powerful grace of a loving God.

Here is a birthright.

An invitation.

A metaphor for flying swiftly above the dangers and dead-ends into the loving arms of a Heavenly Father.

And where you can’t go on your own and when you lack the strength to survive, that’s when He meets you where you are and brings you to Himself… on eagles’ wings.

On Eagles’ Wings He lifts you to a place of intimacy, where you can rediscover the unconditional, object-centered love of an eternal Bridegroom.

On Eagles’ Wings He raises a song of delight and celebration to hearts that once felt abandoned and alone.

On Eagles’ Wings He carries you away to soar with Him in love.

On Eagles’ Wings He rides the winds to take you to a place of mercy, where accusers are silenced and sins are covered.

On Eagles’ Wings He makes your spirit rise again to a living hope, no longer dependent on wishful thinking and willpower, but confidently awaiting the day when you meet Him face to face.

On Eagles’ Wings He carries you away to soar with Him in love.

On Eagles’ Wings He lifts up your eyes to see what He sees when He looks at you – the stainless heart made clean by His blood and beautiful by His life.

On Eagles’ Wings He spirits you away from the distractions and conflicts of this life to rediscover His peace that passes all understanding.

On Eagles’ Wings He carries you away to soar with Him in love.

On Eagles’ Wings He silences the grinding, groaning noise of anxiety and fear and frees your soul to find true rest in His care for you.

On Eagles’ Wings He thrusts you above the dust and smoke of battle to a place where even the air you breathe reminds you that you were created to be a living soul.

On Eagles’ Wings He carries you away to soar with Him in love.

On Eagles’ Wings He stretches Himself to hide you in the His shadow as a refuge and shield.

On Eagles’ Wings He raises you above the fury and thunder of the storms to rediscover the quiet waters where souls are restored and made whole again.

On Eagles’ Wings He carries you away to soar with Him in love.

So regardless of the strength of the storms or the fury of the fears…

Regardless of the weariness of your body or the accusations against your soul…

Hear the invitation of your Eternal Beloved.

Embrace His offer to come away and learn to breathe and see and dream and live and hope and love again…

On Eagles’ Wings.
