Galatians 6:9-10, Matthew 10:31

One day when our second child was about two months old, I became discouraged from the level of care needed for a baby.  I looked outside and spotted a cardinal parent taking care of its baby.  I felt a bonding with the bird and was encouraged.  God then gave me the needed strength to keep up with our baby’s needs.

Are you feeling discouraged today?  If you are, think of bird parents that persevere while finding food, repairing nests after storms, etc.  Don’t give up!  If birds can persevere, so can you!  Ask God to give you strength.
