"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

Fly, Stupid Bird!

So, N and I were driving down the road and we spotted a little bird crossing the street. Doesn't it make you wonder why they don't just fly across? I mean, they see a huge moving object travelling towards them and they walk?! Stupid birds! Don't they sense the danger? It is pretty obvious that one should remove itself from the path of something that is most likely going to annihilate it, wouldn't you think?

We do the same thing though!! Turns out stupidity isn't only "for the birds"! We find ourselves in situations all the time that could be somewhat dangerous and we walk...we rationalize...make excuses...WE NEED TO FLY! There is no time when danger is on the way! Get off that path and use the wings that God gave you!

Proverbs 18:10 "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe."
