After a forest fire in a 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. Sickened by the eerie sight, the ranger 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 the toxic smoke would rise. The mother bird could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. The fire blazed and the heat had scorched her small body. The mother remained the loyal protector. She willingly died so those under the cover of her wings would live......We are under His wings. 'He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge.'(Psalm 91:4) We are all loved this much! Knowing this makes a BIG difference in my life. Knowing that I am valuable to God, trusting that He goes before me, that I am covered, that I am protected, that I have nothing to fear...this is the Source of my confidence. Remember the One who loves you and walk tall, be set apart, be different because of His Word, His promises, His faithfulness and His purpose for your life. REJOICE in the decade ahead! AMEN
