Learning from the Seagull

I watched the Seagull
Beating its wings to reach higher places
Rising up on the thermals.
Sheer enjoyment!

As it climbs, fighting the air,
Pressing down the elements,
Defeating the forces of gravity.
Sheer pleasure.

Help me to defeat the inner pressures
And beat down external circumstances,
Victorious in my life with You.
Sheer freedom.

[Elaine Leese]

… Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:26 ♥
