He will cover you
with His feathers, And under His wings you will find refuge.
(Psalm 91:4) This songs beautifully expresses the
peace of knowing that every Child of God can find love and
protection under the all encompassing wings of the Heavenly Father.
A recent story was told that paints a
perfect picture of the beauty of MY FATHER'S WINGS...
After a forest
fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek
up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage. One ranger found a
bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the
ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight,
he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it,
three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings.
The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried
her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under
her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise.
She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her
babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her
small body, the mother had remained steadfast...because she had been
willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.
just listened to Leah's "My Father's Wings" and to say I was taken
back would be an understatement. What a strong and penetrating
voice, one that is unique. It just draws me into a place of
tranquility and wholly acknowledges our Father's presence."
