"Gone to the Birds: Lessons from the Divine Ornithologist"—1
The Eagle

  • Isaiah 40:31
    • "But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint."
    • Steps to Christ: "'God is love,' is written upon every opening bud, upon every spire of springing grass. The lovely birds making the air vocal with their happy songs . . . all testify to the tender, fatherly care of our God, and to His desire to make His children happy." (10)
       
  • Psalm 27:13-14
    • "I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD!"
    • Carl Jung: "Hurry is not of the devil. Hurry is the devil!" (Celebration of Discipline 13)
    • Joyce Landorf God’s Waiting Room
      Let me have my own way, Lord, let me have my own way.
      You are the potter, (but don't forget!) I am the clay.
      Now mold me and make me—if it doesn't hurt too much or cramp my style.
      While I am moving, forging ahead and motor mouth still.
    • God's Waiting Room—Joseph, Moses, Jesus, Paul, You
    • Jim Long: "If the only way to develop patience is to go through difficulty, we'd probably just as soon skip it. Every day brings some exasperation—some need, small or great, that forces us to exercise patience [or impatience, as the case may be]. . . . We struggle with patience because we don't like the circumstances we face. Patience is difficult because things feel out of control. The timing seems wrong; the wait drags on and on."(www.christianitytoday.com/iyf/1998/sepoct/8c5010.html)

    • Desire of Ages: "Christ rejoiced that He could do more for His followers than they could ask or think. . . . He knew that truth, armed with the omnipotence of the Holy Spirit, would conquer in the contest with evil; and that the bloodstained banner would wave triumphantly over His followers. He knew that the life of His trusting disciples would be like His, a series of uninterrupted victories, not seen to be such here, but recognized as such in the great hereafter." (679)

 

"You wait . . . I win . . . You win"
