FLAPPING WINGS TO A NEW PLACE 2/03/1
PARABLE: Today I wanted to listen to Charles
Stanley’ sermon when I was scrapbooking, so I turned on
the tv and the first thing the tv said was, “She’s not
flying yet I need to get her to fly.” That got my
attention because flying represents our ability to soar
It was a cartoon called Franklin and Friends and the
turtle boy was trying to get the goose to fly. She was
very busy ice skating on the frozen pond and she would
take lovely leaps and flap her wings. Because of her
wings, she flowed and glided beautifully along the pond
in comparison to others who were trying to iceskate.
But the turtle boy (I am assuming his name must be
Franklin) was wanting her to learn to fly.
Franklin is English meaning Free man.
He went in to ask his mom if she knew how to fly. His
mom was baking muffins and taught him how to put a
toothpick into the dough to see if they were done
baking. She said they were not ready to come out yet if
there was raw dough on the pick. She ended with “They
are ready when they are ready!” And Franklin GOT it.
He ran out and told the goose that it was ok, she would
fly when she was ready and she was so happy to be
released, saying, “You mean I’m not all awkward like you
said?” Obviously he had tried to push her into flying,
but since I didn’t watch the show, I can only guess
that. He was so gracious and just encouraged her,
telling her that she was beautiful at ice skating and to
keep practicing and flapping her wings as she did. So
she happily took off skating and flapping her wings, and
every time she would leap, it would take her a bit
PARABLE: The above story amazed me because I
have been praying about a little bird for a few weeks.
This little bird seemed a tad larger than a
hummingbird! We had this little tiny bird camp in our
fern in front of our bay window for the winter. It
would flap its wings every day and fly up the bay window
and then flop back down again. It would do this many
times a day and then rest in between.
I kept giving it seed on the ground and praying for it
to live and gain strength to fly. Every day I watched
it make the ascent and seemingly it was getting higher
up the window. This seemed SO slow. One day I saw it
reaching the wire at the top of the window and then make
it to the chain that held the summer bird feeders. I
knew it was ready to take flight! It stayed for a few
days and I enjoyed watching it fly around our roof and
then finally it took off. I knew the Lord was trying to
tell me something.
I think the moral of this story is that we cant grow in
the Lord without stretching and giving our faith a work
out. And we cannot push others by our expectations and
words to help them grow any faster. “They are ready
when they are ready!”
Ecc 3: 1
To everything there is a season, a time for every
purpose under heaven
RHEMA 2/07/13 COMING TO HIM IN THEIR OWN WAY AND TIME
HEARD: It’s all a matter of time sweetheart,
trust Me. There’s a time table for each company.
Signed up for a table called the
Tommy Hicks company. Remnant. So few are
willing. That’s why the children are a part of this.
Destiny, don’t worry I have it all in the palm of My
hand. A lifeline for sure. Eternal in every
direction. There is one for you, and you and you. All
there, kept safe. All that you are embracing is so
big. Vast. They are coming to Me in their own way and
TIMING 2/22/13: In one week’s time, I was amazed
to hear from 7 people, that they had a change of season
and the Lord was opening doors for them for new
ministries. They had been faithful in their past
season, exercised their wings/ gifts and now they are
flying to new opportunities!
