The phoenix is a mythical bird with fiery plumage that lives up to 100 years. Near the end of its life, it creates a nest of twigs and settles in it. The bird along with the nest burn ferociously, reducing bird and nest to ashes.
Some assume that the life of the Phoenix is over — after all who lives after being burnt to ashes?
But the Phoenix, that mighty conqueror, rises from the ashes reborn and renewed.
Life may have presented you with challenges that left you confused, drained and feeling hopeless. You have been burning for what seems like forever. Your energy, passion and life have been consumed by the fire and all everyone sees is ashes – remnants of who you used to be. All you see is the end of your life.
Don’t give up on yourself or God just yet —- You are like the Phoenix, you will rise again with fresh eyes and renewed mind and strength, a new person, ready to soar again.
The fire purifies and strengthens!
