She Soars Like an Eagle

“A kaleidoscope of colors, you can toss her round and round
You can keep her in your vision, but you never keep her down

And she’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies”

The Un-Boxed You Dreaming with GOD

“This is a year, in the Hebrew Calender, of Divine Health, Divine Strength and Supernatural Breakthrough. And God does not want you to remain stuck, confined, by ‘boxes’ that people want to place you in OR maybe YOU placed yourself in. HE wants you to come out of the ‘box’. HE wants you to dream with HIM. God has a dream for your life; there is a God-Dream. No one can kill that God-Dream! Don’t live somebody else’s dream. God has something unique for you! So, dream with HIM and know HE will help you bring it to pass!”
