“And I think to myself, what a wonderful world”
“So God created the
great creatures of the sea ......and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” Gen 1:21.
Recently I learnt something new and very interesting from John Elliot during
his talk to us - the particular type of eagle that lives in Israel teaches its young to fly by dropping it from its beak at great height and then swooping down to catch it on its wings until it learns to fly – amazing.
“Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft “ (Deut 32:11) - a wonderful analogy of how God cares for us.
This got me thinking about God’s amazing Creation - its beauty and variety. Not only are there many kinds of eagles, but we are blessed with so many different types of birds (and animals, fish, plants etc).
March is the time when nature stirs from its winter slumber. Buds appear on the trees, shoots appear on plants and birds start to build their nests again. “The birds of the sky nest
by the waters, they sing among the branches “ Ps 104:12.
So next time you take a walk or sit in your garden, take time to marvel at God’s creation and thank Him.
