As I watched the new found feathered family, nested in the tree, I noticed for the first few days the Momma was always there watching over her brood of young. But after that, more times than not, she was nowhere to be found! What I didn’t realize was that this was intentional.
In order for them to survive on their own the Momma has to leave them be. This is the process. In order for the babies to spread their wings and soar they have to be nudged into it. Nurtured and then expected to go and fulfill their purpose.
This is the way God designed it for the birds.
When I think about it, life has a funny way of preparing us for purpose, too.
I say that because like the brood of young, as we progress through life, God is continually preparing us for purpose. It is God’s design. Sometimes our purpose is not readily apparent. There are times where we might feel awkward while operating in it. We may, from time to time, feel as if we aren’t even capable. I most certainly do. There are times when it feels like God is nowhere to be found.
But rest assured, there comes a moment in time, when you will know that much of your life has been in preparation for your purpose.
Be Strengthened and Encouraged in HIM!
