When we stretch our wings and fly
There’s a freedom that’s released;
Tt’s when we’ve learnt to let go
To discover ultimate peace.
An eagle is majestic
And reaches heights like no other;
It is bold, fierce and confident
And new levels it will discover.
An eagle will always fight a snake
When it’s in mid air,
Since the snake is most vulnerable
And where its power is not there.
An eagle renews its strength
And with patience achieves its mission;
It mounts up and takes the challenge
With keen spiritual insight and vision.
When we’re tempted to be chickens
And where we flap our wings around,
God helps us and encourages us
To take a leap from the fallow ground.
An eagle is an allegory
Of God’s faithful saints and church,
Where on the rock, the spiritual rock
Its faith and mission is birthed.
The eagle will always seek the ‘prey’
That is far off indeed,
Which is the Kingdom of God and His righteousness
And by example take the lead.
Jesus’ body was the ‘carcass’
As He was pierced and bled to death,
But the faithful eagles were by His side
As He paid the price for their debt.
Unfortunately, there will be carnage and carcasses
With the reign of the antichrist,
And the vultures will feast on that tribulation
With an insatiable delight.
However, our Jesus is the ‘body’
Where the eagles do congregate,
And when Jesus returns to rule over the nations
It will certainly be worth the wait.
