No...a sparrow wouldn't just hang out for a couple of years in an airport. And certainly the airport staff wouldn't let him stay for so long. And why do flashbacks of the movie "The Terminal" flood my mind? It's like Tom Hanks and this bird had to simply experience living life inside of an airport!
And of course, once these silly thoughts subsided, God had to give me a lesson for my heart. Really God? Why can't we just leave it at the funny thoughts...the lightheartedness? Why must we dig down deep into the heart and uproot something that I tried to hide, tried to ignore? Oh...that's right...because You want me to be refined for Your glory. I suppose....if I must....so what was this heart lesson that He revealed?
"Don't become comfortable in the uncomfortable."
Really? Back to words spoken to me from a friend awhile ago? Oi vey!
The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
1 John 2:17
