Have you ever been on an airplane on a cloudy day? I always find it fascinating that you begin your journey in the clouds, not able to see anything below. Eventually you get to a point where you rise above the clouds. No matter how bad the weather on the ground is, you are now above it all, surrounded by sunny, blue skies.
I was reminded of this image as I prayed and meditated in church the other day. When you rely on the Godly power within you, you can easily bring yourself to a higher level. Instead of looking up at the cloudy skies and storms around you, rely on this power to bring you above the clouds. Even though storms are still going on, they are now below you. You have risen above into to the clear blue skies. Nothing can stop you now.
It is very important to maintain the attitude that your problems are below you. Yes, they still exist, and yes you need to conquer them. However, when you view your obstacles like you are far above them, the feeling of power and invincibility dominates instead of feeling overwhelmed and defeated. You have a greater confidence, things get done, and goals get accomplished.
Now is your time to fly. Don’t fly through the clouds. Instead, fly into the clear, sunny skies that await you as long as you rely on God’s power to excell. The power is limitless and it’s yours. Take it and fly with it. Enjoy the blessings : )
