Fly Like An Eagle

I like Contemporary Christian services.  I played drums in the band for 25 plus years.  I like to hear songs that can be heard as Christian music from the lyrics like Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like An Eagle”
As we live our lives time keeps on slippin’ into the future and every minute wasted is one more minute lost.  I want to fly like an eagle here and now.  Take a moment and meditate on the lyrics below.
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ …

Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ Steve Miller Band
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I’m free
Oh, Lord, through the revolution
Feed the babies
Who don’t have enough to eat
Shoe the children
With no shoes on their feet
House the people
Livin’ in the street
Oh, oh, there’s a solution
I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I’m free
Fly through the revolution
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I’m free
Fly through the revolution
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
I still feel I have much to do here on this earth.  No matter how this world turns out.  You do know the difference between the earth and the world?  Right?  I won’t go into it.  Look it up.
This whole world can implode and this earth will still be here with its survivors.  This earth is and has been here a lot longer than the world has.  Man has not always been here.  He didn’t evolve.  He was placed here.  I have many thoughts as to how since I know God created man in His image, but how many were created that were not created in His image?  I’m off on a rabbit trail here with a lot left unsaid, but suffice to say I believe the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob created me.  I abide as much by His rule as possible.
He can make me to fly like an eagle on His spiritual winds.  I’ve flown on them before and shall again.  It’s time to free the broken-hearted.
