Soaring Like an Eagle

With permission, I have extracted this photo-quote from Motivateustoday.com. All rights reserved worldwide.

When the spacecraft carrying the first men to the moon made its lunar landing, astronaut Neil Armstrong radioed back to the Earth and said, "The Eagle has landed!" NASA must have christened the spacecraft as "Eagle" because of the enviable character traits of the eagle, a bird that is a popular source of reference for preachers and motivational speakers.

The enviable character traits of the eagle include its clear vision, its focus on achieving its vision, its ability to overcome storms by soaring above the clouds, its preference for eating fresh meat and its renewal process when it reaches advanced age. Great character traits, aren't they?

Today, let me focus on the eagle's character trait of overcoming storms by soaring above the clouds; a trait that gives it peace as the world beneath is buffeted by stormy weather. The kind of peace that St. Paul described as surpassing all understanding.

Life is full of storms. There are sicknesses, injuries, loss, theft, criticism, rejections, mistakes, conflicts, discouragements, fears, career failures, rude remarks, technological problems, financial constraints - just to mention but a few. No one is immune to most of those storms regardless of wealth and physical looks.

On my part, I am striving to develop myself to a point where those storms no longer affect my serenity. I want to live peacefully in times of prosperity as well as in times of adversity. By so doing, I will emulate the eagle that experiences peace in times of stormy weather by soaring above the clouds. Hopefully after I die, the angels will welcome me in heaven by shouting rejoicingly, "The eagle has landed!"

Proof That God Exists

If you know the genuine copy-right holder of this picture-quote, please let me know so that I can acknowledge him and link my audience to his website.

Sometime in October 2016 as I was taking a walk on late evening, I was invigorated on gazing at the perfectly spherical slivery moon which seemed in my eyes to be freely suspended in the sky without any pillars to support it. I was left with an impression I sometimes have when I view a full moon: that the Creator must have used a mathematical set to design it. And I eventually found myself reciting this quote by Alfred Tennyson:
The sun, the moon, the stars, the seas, the hills and the plains - are not these, O soul, the vision of Him who reigns?
I was truly stirred to worship God, felt His peace and moved to disagree with atheists who claim the idea of God's existence is a delusion. Okay, let me reason it out.

Suppose I disassemble my sleek Lenovo Ideapad™ laptop, put the disassembled parts in a container and shake it. No matter how slowly or vigorously I shake the container, never in a million years will the parts assemble themselves again into the sleek laptop I enjoy using. Its making requires intelligent and organized labour which in this case is a learned team of humans.

Similarly, there is no way the universe as we know it would have come into existence without a careful design by a very intelligent super-natural being. For how else can you explain these amazing facts:
  • The Earth is just at the right distance from the Sun to make it possible to sustain life
  • The ozone layer exists in the Earth's atmosphere to shield us from harmful solar ultra-violet rays
  • The Earth's atmospheric pressure balances with blood pressure without which blood would ooze out
  • The body of a healthy handsome young man (like me) has no unnecessary parts just like a well-engineered machine or a well-written story
I could go on and on to list other amazing facts of the universe but I beg to stop there in the interest of time. And while am not sure whether I have succeeded in convincing you further that God does exist, I have been led on my part to dedicate the remaining years of my life to Him who reigns. Adieu!
