Bird sounds are story
News of the hours coming forth
Songs of belonging
From tree tops to bus stops
Some so sweet
Their honey-dipped tweets
Others with purpose
As their tiny hearts beat
A message burning their beaks
They have no choice but to speak
Together in nature
This flying body of Christ
A symphony of bird voices
Rising from earth
Celebrating this given day’s birth
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophesies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears (1 Corinthians 13:6-10).
Perhaps you needed this reminder today. Love never fails, that is His love for us. His powerful, cleansing, life-giving love never fails. We only get a glimpse as I did when I sat on my porch in the early morning listening to His birds. Just a glimpse. What I heard was glorious but nothing compared to the glory upon the return of Jesus.
I pray you seek Him today for whatever it is you need. I pray for all of us to raise a Hallelujah, broken or whole.
