‘ Do not ask the Lord to Guide your Footsteps if you are not willing to move your Feet’

"May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love." Ephesians 3:17



If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by

8 feet and is entirely open at the top,

the bird, in spite of its ability to fly,

will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is

that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground

with a Run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space

to run, as is its habit, It will not even

attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner

for life in a small jail with no top.


The ordinary bat that flies around at night,

a remarkable nimble creature in the air,

cannot take off from a level place.

If it is placed on the floor or flat

ground, all it can do is shuffle about

helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it

reaches some slight elevation from which it can

throw itself into the air. Then, at once,

it takes off like a flash.


A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler,

will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.

It never sees the means of escape at the top,

but persists in trying to find some way out

through the sides near the bottom.

It will seek a way where none exists,

until it completely destroys itself.


In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and

the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our

problems and frustrations, never realizing that

all we have to do is look up! That’s the answer,

the escape route and the solution to any problem!

Just look up.

Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and

trust in our Creator who loves us.
