HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!!!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Last summer The Lord allowed me to visit nature like I had never experienced or seen before... All while working at the bank :)
The Curry Branch has the most beautiful view from the drive thru window. It over looks a farm house with a big beautiful tree in the front yard. It is a common sight to see bunnies hopping or deer galloping throughout the wide open field.
It was not common and very unexpected to see a bird nest being built in the middle of a business! In the middle of concrete, yellow poles, the ATM, loud crashing sounds as the bank tubes fall down and the first window drawer pulling in and out as the customers come and go...yet the birds built their nest at the bank and not on the farm.
Morning after morning as I pulled the shades up to open the bank, two little birds were seen singing and hard at work! Seven days went by and it seemed to me to be finished; the nest looked great but the little birds continued to work and build it higher and higher!
Three full weeks had passed when Mama bird rested in her home and Daddy bird watched as he perched proudly on the ATM! The baby birds were born and it was amazing for the entire staff to sneak a peek during work days to see what would unfold.
Day after day the birds were provided for and each day I would wonder if it would be the day they would take flight. Each one took their own journey as their parents watched with caution. At first they stayed very close to home as they would fly and land on different ledges around the bank until one day one flew off and never returned and the others were quick to follow.
The Lord showed me so many beautiful things through out this experience. Lessons to be shared and lessons that I need to apply to my own life!
SOMETIMES in life we might find ourselves on the other side of the track of perfection. Maybe we would rather be living on the farm; God perfects that which concerneth us. (Psalms 138:8)
ALWAYS in life be happy and content! The birds built in the middle of chaos but they still sang praises to God each morning. (Psalms 100:1-2)
SOMETIMES in life we work very hard but God wants us to go higher and higher! The birds never gave up so don't you! (1 Corinthians 15:57)
And ALWAYS in life people take different journeys. Each bird took a different path but in the end they all learned to fly. Be patient with fellow Christians. Remember babies in real life cry and have to be carried. So do baby Christians!
On a hot Summer day, four baby birds ended up at the bank in a nest and The Lord God Almighty provided for their every need!
How do I know The Lord loves us, will provide for us and will do the same for His children as He did for the birds? READ (Matthew 6:26)
