Under His Wings

Have you ever had someone take you under their wing? I'm sure you have. I'm sure you all have. Maybe you were the "new kid" at school or work and someone went out of their way to help you get on your way. Or maybe you did something scary, like try out a new church or a new class and someone assisted you while you got settled. They introduced you to people, demonstrated how certain things work, invited you to lunch so that you wouldn't feel alone. They gave you tips and advice and did everything they could to help you feel comfortable.

Isn't it a great feeling to have someone guiding you, leading you, and protecting you?

Guess what?

God has us under His wings, too.

Every single step of the way, God is guiding us, leading us, and protecting us. He is sending us the people we need, He is laying down the foundation for us to live the best life we can live. There is a certain trust that comes with this. Just as it does with those who mentor us in our daily lives, we must trust that God will continue to carry us, that He will not drop us, and if we start to fall we just need to hold on closer.

Isn't it beautiful to know that God love us so much that He carries us under his wings, right next to His heart? I know it brings me an immense amount of comfort and peace.

I think that when we begin to trust God's strength and guidance, and truly live under His wings, we begin to make new discoveries. That life is beautiful, that we are precious, that each moment we live is important.
