Don’t Send Chickens to Eagle School
There is a story of how an Indian brave found an eagle egg and put it into the nest of a chicken. The eaglet hatched and grew with the chickens. He thought he was a chicken. One day he looked in the sky and saw an eagle soaring. He thought, “What a beautiful bird.” He wished he could be like the eagle, but he was just another chicken. You don’t send chickens to eagle school. It is hard to be an eagle when you are surrounded by chickens. The eagle died thinking he was only a chicken. He never knew of his hidden potential as an eagle. Some Christians never know their full potential or what they could have done. It is sad to live a life of regrets. Don’t live another person’s dreams. Don’t be born an original and die a copy. Seek to soar high above the ground and reach your fullest potential for God. Don’t think you are a chicken when you are an eagle. Uncap and release your potential! Reach towards your God-given goals. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:14). Lift your wings and soar high toward the heavens. Look into the face of God and shout, “This is where I belong.” Eagles were meant to soar not remain on the ground. One day I told my wife, “I am tired of waiting and walking it is time to soar.” We relocated Silent Word Ministries in Trenton, Georgia and have been soaring for many years. It’s great to be where you belong. “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). Is this your day to soar as an eagle? Flap your wings and take a leap of faith
