“If you’re a bird, then I’m a bird!” The main characters in the movie “The Notebook” are running and laughing on the beach, in love and happy. The girl acts like she is flying through the waves and shouts, “I’m a bird!” The boy, laughing lovingly at her, has to be a bird with her, no other choice. If she is a bird, he is also. One without the other is unthinkable, unimaginable.
The longing to fly, to soar, to leave the confines of gravity and take off through the beautiful skies are common themes for us humans. The good news is that if you love Jesus, you will fly. You will take off with Him and fly forever. Be the bird. 🙂
“We…will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” (1 Thessalonians 4:17)
“I will fly with Jesus; I will soar. Wrapped in mercy, love and truth & more. Joy found in Him forever. I will fly….I will fly…” (c2012 Lisa Lyons, “I Will Fly”)
