Welcome to Day 19 of #write31days. Brave is the word prompt for the Five Minute Friday Free Writes. My first thought was to wonder how I could relate this prompt to my nature theme. Then this haiku seemed to write itself.
Brave are the baby birds
First time flying from the nest
Mama waits nearby
I shared it with my friend, Peggi, and she loved it.
Then she shared with me something she heard one time in a sermon.
It was about how eagles teach their babies to fly. They actually push them out of the nest, but then swoop down below them to in case they have trouble. (One article I found said that happens when the babies are reluctant to leave.)
That reminded me of how God sometimes asks us to do hard things, but He doesn’t leave us alone.
We don’t have to do it in our own strength. He is right there with us to catch us when we fall and put us back on the right path.
I learn to be brave
When I put my trust in God
Knowing He’s with me.
We all have times when we must be brave.
We can take courage, move out in faith and follow our paths to fulfill our purpose. Maybe we don’t always know where we are going, but we move down the path putting one foot in front of the other. We can be faithful in the little things as we grow into the people we were meant to be.
