Day 5: Three Little Birds


Oh what we can learn from

just

Three Little Birds...

Three black crows decided to take a bath

in a huge pothole at the bottom of our driveway.

One flew in, and was splashing around.

Another crow spotted him

and waddled (yes, waddled) over

and jumped in with him

....then a third.

All having a grande 'ole time

in a

pothole.

Taking a "bad" thing

and using it for good.

Something which causes a bumpy ride in my car,

is providing a spa for birds.

It made me smile.

It made me think about the

potholes

in my life which I allow to steal my

my peace, my joy.

pothole~

"a disruption in the surface of the roadway"

Hmm...interesting.

How is one to bathe with joy when these “disruptions” come?

What do you see as a pothole, a disruption, in your life?

Just as this hole is serving a purpose for the birds,

the holes in our life are also serving a purpose

because

God uses all things.

Most of the time,

we have no clue what is going on,

and question

why would God allow such

a trial,

an unexpected "bump" in the road.

But

with our every question,

He has an answer

because

" … we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

God always working behind the scenes,

putting together the puzzle of our life,

using all things

even a

pothole~

whatever your

pothole

may be~

Even a

pothole

in the street...

Because that

pothole

has shown me

Peace.

That

pothole

has taught me

Patience.

That

pothole

has made me smile...

just by

turning a

pothole

into a

birdbath

Just by turning...

Bitter into Better

A Mess into your Message

Panic into Peace

All because of the

One

Who

will work for the good

for the me

for the you

Who loves Him.

If it wasn't for the

potholes

in my life

I would never had needed a “hole filler”.

Anything that I give Him,

He fixes

and fills

with His love.

He has everything that is needed to fill whatever holes are in your life.

No hole is too big for God.

These are opportunities to bring

us closer to the Lord

where He grows our faith

as we lean on Him and allow Him to "pave" our way.

How has God used a pothole to bring you deeper in your faith?

The crows have left

and now a little sparrow just came and drank from the pothole.

The annoyance in my life is now an oasis for the birds.

Now when I drive out of my driveway,

and my coffee spills all over me

because of the

pothole

I will smile

remembering that this

"bump in the road"

is being used for good~

a resort for the neighborhood crows.

May you find joy in then midst of whatever

pothole

is in your life right now

as you

Learn

from

the

Three Little Birds~

Therefore

I tell you,

do not worry

about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Look at the birds of the air;

they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Matthew 6:25-27
