BEING FREE

eagle verse

As I gazed up into the bright, sun-lit sky on a clear, cloudless day, I saw a bird soaring gently through the air.  I saw such beauty in the sight.  I first thought how God created the birds of the sky to soar with such free-ness.

Wouldn’t it be neat if we could be like the birds and spend our time singing and flying far throughout God’s creation—just living moment by moment?

As I continued to think about the birds, I couldn’t help but think, maybe God was showing me this bird to remind me to be more like them—

**not worry about tomorrow,

**simply live one moment at a time,

**rest in His love and care.

He will be our strength and provide all we need when we need it.

As we grow more and more in faith and trust, we will be more like the birds—our spirits will soar freely with Him—free of the tensions and worries of this world.

“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? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” –Matthew 6:26-27 (NIV)

  1. I love this piece of scripture! I am a Philadelphia Eagles fan, and the eagle is just such a majestic creature. When they are flying they are so free and beautiful in nature. Thanks for sharing this post on not worrying. #bloggercaregroup
