In Others’ Words: Take Flight
And there’s something to be said about those times when whatever it is we’re trying to accomplish just happens.
Ponder this with me for a moment: that little baby bird standing at the edge of it’s oh-so-safe nest. And the next thing he (or she) knows, Momma bird shoves him over the edge because it’s time — it’s the right thing to do. Although I’m bettng that’s not what the baby bird is thinking as he’s flapping and falling . . .
And then he’s flying.
Not because he knows what to do . . . but because it’s what he’s made to do.
Until he left the nest — left this comfort zone with an unexpected shove from the one who represented safety and home to him — that bird didn’t know the sky was meant for him. He didn’t know that flying was effortless . . . that he didn’t even have to think about it.
I’ve had moments where God has shoved me from behind and said “Get out there . . . you’re not meant to stay here.”
Why is God forcing me to leave my nice, warm comfort zone – the place I liked best of all? I knew I’d fall . . . and then, I looked up, and all I saw were unexpected, wide-open horizons.
In Your Words: When has God moved you into something unexpected — and you’ve found yourself flying, embracing the truth of who you are in a whole new way?
