Soaring Above

The eagle that soars at great altitudes 
never worries about how it will cross a river.
When I am stumped by the obstacles in life.
When I can't figure out how I get through them.
When I am at a loss for strategy and solution.
God says to me, 
Why worry about going through them
when you can let Me take you over them?
My mindsets can be so limiting, 
so natural, so earthbound.
Set your minds on what is above--
not on the things that are on the earth.
Colossians 3:2
When He told me to write "Up is Better,"
I knew He was going to teach me 
about living from His vantage point.
I forget that sometimes.
Challenges are all around
and my mind is flooded with things 
that are bound to this dimension.
Lord, You are my strength 
and my shield and my victorious life.
I am seated with You and am not bound
by the limitations of this earth.
You don't come down to 
build a bridge over the river.
You remind me to come up with You
so I can soar over it.
I am eternally present with You today.
The abiding presence of Your love
 is my most valuable treasure and 
the most powerful weapon that I have.

May I be rooted deep in love
and founded securely on love.
May I have the power to apprehend
and grasp the experience of that love,
that I know practically 
the love of Christ,
the richest measure of the divine Presence,
 that I am wholly filled and flooded 
with God Himself!
Eph 3:17-19
