This bird reminds me of a little chick a dee that I saw in my garage yesterday. It was scampering around looking for food, and it probably found some crumbs in my garage! This is not the first time this has happened. I need to get some seed and put it out, away from my dogs who think everything is for them.
We think that everything is dead in the winter. I don't see it that way at all. The other day I watched four squirrels chase each others bushy tails as they played in the woods. What a winter wonderland it must have been for them! We can just imagine what they would be saying thanks to cartoons.
My point is that even when things seem dead, there is life working in them to bring them to fullness. Maybe you are going through a dormant season spiritually. Every time you pray, it seems like your prayers are bouncing off the ceiling. It doesn't seem as if God is hearing you and you wonder what is going on!
It is in these times that we are growing the most. The struggles bring us strength just as exercise builds our muscles. Nothing good happens without some good work put into it. So it is with our relationships, especially with God, because we can't see Him with our physical eyes. His presence is ever real and closer than we can grasp, but we have to put on our spiritual armor so that these truths are not stolen from us. Read the Word of God, meditate on it, keep it in your pocket, or close at hand.Ask a friend to pray with you over the phone, or through texts. I have heard some of the most beautiful prayers in a text message. Just as real and as useful as if it is spoken. love you so much!
