An osprey often glides over and across the green space behind my home. It is seeking food. It knows it will find an abundance of critters available for its next meal. A plethora of choice actually. Squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks and birds all frequent my back garden.
Oft times I watch the prey creatures going about their business below the hunter and wonder why the osprey is not attacking. It obviously knows what is good for its own well-being. It is choosing carefully.
I pondered this and asked myself if I was equally diligent in my choices. Equally discerning when taking into account my own well-being.
Am I always drawn to what will be good for me?
I think I am, yet in my imperfection I reason that there are times when I lack wisdom. Knowing and seeking calls for discernment. So – I pray each day for God’s intervention in my life; that I will follow His guidance because I need help every day.
Just as the magnificent osprey carefully determines what the next move is, I pray that my next action proves to be beneficial to not only me, but also to those around me.
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you. (NKJV)
