Slept in the warmth of her nest only to be awakened by a nightmare in the grip of a fowler. It was a miracle of preposterous proportions for its throat to escape the hunter’s dagger.
The gospel of Christ has faced so much opposition yet survives. Jonathan remarked, “…Nothing can hinder the LORD from saving, whether by many or by few.”(1Samuel 14:6b).
Paul also said, “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”(2Corinthians 4:8-9)
But like the bird, we may be attacked, houses burned, bodies broken, we live above it all and still make the beautiful music above all our challenges.
The story of a the captured bird, whose nest was destroyed, that escaped and still sings is the inspiration for this piece titled: “The Bird Still Sings” 1.5″ X 2″ Charcoal on paper…
