A few years ago a great-niece of mine came to stay with me and do to the distance I traveled for work there would be time she would be alone. In order to help her fight the loneliness while I was at work I brought her a bird. The pet shop upon purchase of the bird clipped the wings so it would not fly. The bird will spend… it’s time in a cage or out but would not be able to fly away.
The young man that clipped the wings told me I would have to bring it back from time to time to have the procedure repeated. A few times I opened up the cage for the bird to get out and stretch and the bird would flap his wings trying to fly as God had intended but the bird frustration would show for it wasn’t able to do what was natural to him.
Eventually my niece returned home to her mother and I put my house up for sale and didn’t want to take the bird to the new house with me. So on the last day that I was to spend in the house I took the bird cage to the back yard and opened up the gate. The bird walked out of the door of the cage and didn’t try to fly because I guess it use to the fact that no matter it tried to flap its wing it would not become airborne. The neighbor dog noticed the bird and barked the noise startled the bird causing it to flap his wings. Much to the bird surprise it wings were now healed and the bird lifted up from the gate of the cage and the flew to the top of my than six foot chain linked fence. There he sat a moment and looked to me as to say thank you. We glanced at each other and the bark of the dog became louder and the bird took off to soar as it never had before.
The point of this is to let you know no matter how broken or trapped you may have been, you will heal and the cage will be opened and you will soar among eagles if you only believe and don’t let your circumstance keep you trapped in a cage.
