Day 5: Three Little Birds
Oh what we can learn from
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
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
in my life which I allow to steal my
my peace, my joy.
"a disruption in the surface of the roadway"
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
God uses all things.
Most of the time,
we have no clue what is going on,
why would God allow such
an unexpected "bump" in the road.
with our every question,
He has an answer
" … 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
in the street...
has shown me
has taught me
has made me smile...
Just by turning...
Bitter into Better
A Mess into your Message
Panic into Peace
All because of the
will work for the good
for the me
for the you
Who loves Him.
If it wasn't for the
in my life
I would never had needed a “hole filler”.
Anything that I give Him,
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
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
is in your life right now
Three Little Birds~
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?
