Free To Fly

There are times in our lives when we feel like we are going through life in circles, flying by the seat of our pants. There are times when we may feel like we are trapped in cages like birds that does not have wings; we are grounded. There may be times when we are going through something that just does not make since, but in all reality there is a brick wall that is just waiting for us to hit it. If God did not want us to have legs and feet to move around, we would never get to experience the different parts of the world, we would never get to experience climbing mountains, swimming, running, driving, or walking our daughters down the isle on their wedding day. We were not made to be still in this world, we were made to enjoy our lives, to worship God, and share the gospel. We are free to fly. When I say “fly”, I mean we can go where ever our hearts desires to go in this world. We can travel and explore the world, go to distant lands, countries, states, but most of all we can return home. We can return home to our loving heavenly Father; His arms are always open wide for us to run into. He is always ready to take us in, to put us on a new robe, to put new rings, and shoes on our hands and feet. He is always ready to celebrate our return home.

I know that things can be a bit overwhelming at times, but all of the stress and pressures of life can be laid at the feet of Jesus. We do not have to carry the worries of the world on our shoulders, we can leave it all at the feet of Jesus. We do not have to pick it up. We are free to fly, free to be happy, free to love, free to laugh, free to live, free to have peace in our lives. We cannot get caught up in the things that are going on in this world, because when we do it will take over our lives and consume us to the point as to where it will be all that is thought about. Yes, it is important that we stay up on what is going on, but we do not have to let it take over our lives. Everything that is going on now in this world makes it unsafe, makes us unsure of who we can and cannot trust.

Just know that God is still on the throne. He see everything that is going on in this world, and I just hope and pray that one day all of this craziness will come to an end. I pray that one day that this world will be a safe place for us all to live in again. There are generations coming after us, and I just want them all to be safe as they are flying free. As they are living their lives making a way in this world for themselves. All of those that have gone before us made it possible for us to fly free. They flew through the things that we do not have to fly through. They flew through every disadvantage that we may have the advantages that they did not have in their lives. They flew through the doors that were closed, they opened them up for us so we could fly through them today. Let us keep those same doors open for future generations so they can keep them open for the generations after them.
