Flying Lessons

[Time to get crackin’]

This “Captain’s Blog” series–admittedly–is going to to be a little different. I’ve gone with “Captain’s Blog” (playing off of Startrek’s Captain’s log) and a flight/bird theme.  It’s quirky, but I’m quirky, so it works for me.  (Plus I love the sound of Captain’s Blog with the image of Jean-Luc Picard sitting with his tea cup at the ready, recording the days events and insights).

I’m going to admit something else, this isn’t what I’d originally posted.  I  was never happy with this post, I kept throwing it in the trash, and then retrieving it–then throwing it right back in the trash again.  I figured this time, maybe I should just rewrite it in a way that doesn’t make me want to throw it in the trash (Sounds logical enough–right?).

So to back track, when I wrote this, my “nest” was in need of some major de-clutter.  It happens.  I get off-course quite frequently.  More often than not due to the rollercoaster that is my health.  However, September began a new season in my life.  This also threw me off course. Suddenly I had all these wonderful things to ponder and write about, thus I went out “leaping from my stall” as God opened that gate.

I titled this post “Flying Lessons” with the idea that those who trust in God shall soar on wings like Eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint (Isaiah 40:31). I need some flying lessons.  I’m not there yet.  I’m not soaring, but I have that hope.  Some days I’m on cloud nine, and I feel as if I’m soaring those blue skies, but then I hit a bit of turbulence and I start to nose dive.

So this is life as I know it and see it.  I want it to be an honest look at who I am through my victories as well as my failures, as God leads me, and I seek to know Him even more.  There’s so much more to my blog than just this journal, and my hope is that you might find some encouragement to help you with your “flying lessons” too.

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  –Isaiah 40:29-31
