Shadow of your wings...

By PaisleyJade - Sunday, August 10, 2008

Today I was feeling a tad bit down and took a moment to step out on the back porch to see how the baby chickens were going (especially in this cold frosty weather).

The sight that met my eyes was beautiful, and warmed my heart and soul.

Mother hen was sitting outside on the grass, with no baby chickens to be seen. Then out from under her wing popped a bright yellow head. Our little yellow chicken happily looked around as it sat tucked under her warm and protective wing, not a care in the world as long as it's mummy was there to snuggle into.

Straight away I was reminded of our Heavenly Father and the many amazing scriptures there are that refer to his 'wings'.

Psa 36:7 How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.

Psa 17:8 Guard me as the apple of your eye. Hide me in the shadow of your wings.

Rth 2:12 May the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge, reward you fully."

Psa 61:4 Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings!

Psa 63:7 I think how much you have helped me; I sing for joy in the shadow of your protecting wings.

Psa 91:4 He will shield you with his wings. He will shelter you with his feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

It's amazing what can impact you from everyday life... thank you little yellow chicken!
