Eagles in the Snow

Posted on: 7-15-112015

Many across the nation have been following the story of two bald eagle parents in Codorus State Park in Hanover, Pennsylvania.  The two eagles have been taking turns sitting on their nest which contains two eggs and have been diligent in their parenting responsibilities despite the fact that several inches of snow have fallen and they have been literally buried in snow.  Several pictures taken of the mother eagle have shown her sitting on her nest with only her head sticking up above the snow.  In order to keep the snow from completely covering her, she shakes her head side to side to knock the snow off of her head. Nothing is going to stop these parents from doing whatever it takes to protect their young.  Our heavenly Father, in much the same way, protects us.  He gathers us under His wings, draws us close to Him, and guards us with His life.  Just like the eagles who will not let anything draw them away from the nest, God will not let anything draw Him away from us.  There is nothing that will ever cause Him to leave us or forsake us.   He knows His role as our Father and He is in it for the long haul.  When times get tough, He just tightens His grip on us.  When the storms rage around us, He draws us closer and keeps us safe.  He gives no attention to His own self, but only concerns Himself with our well being.  He sacrifices for our good.  His love for us is beyond compare.  If you think of the eagles protecting their eggs, I hope you will also be reminded of God’s love and protection for you.  I hope you will realize how precious you are to Him and the lengths He will go to in order to show that love to you.

“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge…” Psalm 91:4
