If the birds can then why can’t we?

As I read my book, he fluttered about from limb to limb. Then I began to notice that he would always land on the tiniest of branches and soar up and down from the branch to the ground and back…..with ease, not one feather out of place. I pondered the ease of transition and the trust he floated on with each ascent, and thought, ” Why was I so frazzled at the smallest change or decision to change, while this bird soared back and forth without a care or any effort….all the while thin, frail, leafless sticks sustained him. What a faith flight!!! Tears filled my eyes and a lump crept up in my throat, as I mused, “Why can’t I trust You like that?”
