Reflections on 2019 – Number 3 – Isaiah 40:28-31- Eagles don’t flock

They spread their wings and soar like eagles !!!!!

I was reflecting on the post I made early this year about my realization that intertwined to my chase , and had come to the realization that I was in part chasing my friends dreams. It seems many life lessons have come to me as a result of that post and I have been hearing over and over the Holy Spirit asking me over and over “ who told you that birds of the same feathers flock together “? Is it even biblical ?

Who told you that birds of the same feather flock together ? Is it biblical that you should flock ?

Immediately after this question I was led to listen to Dr Myles Munroe, I got goosebumps when I heard him say EAGLES don’t FLOCK

The only bird God uses to identify himself with in the Bible is an EAGLE 🦅…. Dr Myles Munroe and I was shocked 😮

I heard myself saying “ this is why it is so lonely “ soaring on that level of an eagle is lonely and that is part of life . Making decisions that stand out is lonely but again I don’t think it’s so much about those decisions. I think it’s the fact that there’s no one else on this earth who has your DNA therefore there are times when it’s just you and you alone.

I do believe now that it is unavoidable and it is supposed to be like that because I alone know the purpose that God created me for . . .

I would be lying if I said there is no comfort in flocking though , there is belonging in flocking , all which are some of the basic human needs . .

But in order to make an impact in this world , I ought not to be afraid of soaring by myself .

When I see the following characteristics I identify them as such , these include

⁃ Fear of making a different choice out of fear of isolation

⁃ Second guessing yourself

⁃ Over consulting

⁃ Seeking peoples approval even on maters where you have absolute confidence

⁃ Needing a buy in for every decision you make

There’s a lot but these few just stand out for me.

So I am ending this year with a very grounded feeling and a better sense of identity when coming to the person I am and becoming . I also now have better view of the role of my friendships and other relations

For example I no longer desire to acquire what my sister or friends have , or perceive their material , academic or any acquisitions as a point of motivation for me to get the same. That season is over. I am now in time and season of staying in my lane and respect all that which my lane provides and not get astray by what my sister and friend have in their lane. In this way , I get to show up in the most authentic , loving and very graceful way

I have found myself 🙏🙏
