The cute little guys in the picture above have been living under the front awning at our church for about a week now.
I’ve been watching their mom sitting on her eggs for several weeks and just last Friday as I was leaving the church I noticed that they had hatched and were peeking their little heads out of the nest. Today they were all standing on the edge as if considering taking a step off and flying.
I couldn’t help but imagine what must have been going through their little minds as they were thinking about flying for the first time. Were they are afraid to jump or do they just take off with no fear?
After watching them for a while I have come to the conclusion that they must thoroughly assess the situation before actually making the big leap because I never saw any of them actually step off the edge and fly.
I imagined them running it by each other, saying things like, ‘Wow we sure are really high up… do you think its really true that we can fly?….you go first…no you go ahead…”
The cool thing is that whether they believe they can fly or not, God already had flying planned for their lives before they were even born. And once they make the decision to take that first step off that ledge flying is for sure going to happen.
It’s the same for us too.
Before we were born God already had a plan for each one of our lives
We can choose to stay perched where we feel safe or we can bravely take the first step off the edge and fly into what he has planned for our lives.
What does God have planned for your life?
Will you fly?
