They say a wounded eagle flies to its nest—
lies on its back with outspread wings, and waits
for the warmth of the sun to heal its wounds.
Then rising with renewed strength and power—
the mighty eagle spreads it wings and takes flight,
soaring once again towards the heavens.
Do you sometimes feel like a wounded eagle?
You know you are meant to fly with Spirit wings—
yet you are wounded and weary,
weak with no strength.
Learn the lesson of the eagle.
Fly to the empty nest awaiting you.
Bask in the healing and strength of the Son’s presence,
and rise up once again with Spirit wings,
soaring with the One who makes all things new.
Father God: May our hearts rise up with a fresh dose of strength today, trusting you to renew and restore our spirit, soul, and body. In the matchless name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
