We were with the family down near where the Illinois and Mississippi rivers meet when we saw this eagle taking off after eating its lunch. An impressive sight to say the least. I didn’t notice the little grackle until looking at the picture later. It makes me ponder what I feed on. The people who mount up with the powerful wings don’t do it by careful and clever study and effort. They quietly depend on instruction and direction from the Lord Jesus Christ. He gives it liberally in His Word. Unlike this little grackle we can all learn to be eagles.
I’ll confess I find this difficult. Stopping to remember who He is and what I am changes the whole equation though.
