Early one Monday morning, as I opened the shades, I saw a brood of young. Momma bird had given birth in the nest she had made in the tree directly outside my dining room window.
Every day, numerous times throughout the day, I checked on the new found family.
When the babies were just about a week old, as they were eating from the momma’s mouth, they began to spread their wings while eating. In fact, fiercely. My husband said they were using their wings to push one another out of the way. Could this be the beginnings of sibling rivalry? Who knows! What I do know is as they were being nourished it caused them to begin to develop and exercise what they needed, wings, to fulfill their destiny.
Over time, with practice, the babies flight feathers develop. Get this. Some might even fall to the ground while learning how to fly. It’s a clumsy process. But over time, their wings strengthen, and they do what they are destined to do: Spread their wings and soar.
When the babies are born, they have no idea, that each day is preparing them to do what they are called to do. Each day is designed for purpose. Specifically, for every one of the birds, the day comes when they must leave the nest and fly.
Hmmm. That’s how it is for us, too.
Each of us is born with a purpose. Our journey through life is preparing us for it. God doesn’t reveal the sheer magnitude of our purpose in the beginning. He doesn’t reveal all the details of what it will take to fulfill it. So, there is no trailer. You don’t get a preview of what you may go through, what it may cost you personally, to achieve it.
So, we live trusting each day is preparation to bring us closer to our destiny. Branching out in faith. Trusting in God.
Because just like the brood of young, there comes comes a day where we will spread our wings and soar.
Father, Help me to remember that You are continually directing my steps and drawing me closer to my destiny. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Be Strengthened and Encouraged in HIM!
