A little something to put things in perspective...
An article in National Geographic several years ago
provided an interesting picture of God's wings.
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park,
forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to
assess the inferno's damage.
One ranger found a bird literally petrified in
ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the
base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie
sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When
he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried
from under their dead mother's wings. The loving
mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had
carried her offspring to the base of the tree and
had gathered them under her wings, instinctively
knowing that toxic smoke would rise. She could
have flown to safety but had refused to abandon
her babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the
heat had scorched her small body, the mother had
remained steadfast. Because she had been willing
to die, so those under the cover of her wings
"He will cover you with his feathers, and under
his wings you will find refuge." (Psalm 91:4)
Being loved this much should make a difference in
your life. Remember the One who loves you, and
then be different because of it!
