Hungry birds flitted around the feeders. Both feeders were in “take a number” mode – all four perches occupied, one bird sitting on the top.
One bird, however, didn’t want to wait. It hovered above the perched birds, then landed on the side of the feeder, holding on to the wire cage while pecking at the plastic container underneath. It hopped all the way around, certain it could find a way to the seed it could see but not quite reach. Frustrated, it flew away...right before a perch opened up.
If only it had waited...
How often are we like this bird, hungry for something we can see and not willing to wait?
“Yes, I see the door, Lord, but I want to go this way.” We bang our heads into the wall trying to make another way forward, too impatient to wait for the path to the door to be cleared.
TODAY'S CHALLENGE: Is your head sore from banging it into the wall? Be willing to wait on the Lord for His timing and His way.
