After years of living where we live, it is surprising and startling that birdlife once hidden, now comes near our house. I did not see the bird but its call is loud like a trumpet blast.
I am familiar with the sound of the Whip-Bird and its duet with its mate. I heard it many times while walking forest trails as a young person. I have never heard it before outside my window.
I lay back and listened. It was a great opportunity to pray and welcome a new day.
The sound of the whip crack in this wild-bird call is passionate and urgent in its refrain. Wake UP!
May be ‘cracking a whip’ is not our way to keep proclaiming the times in which we live but…………..
If a tiny bird has such a strident call that shakes the senses with its passion. Perhaps we too must be passionate about what we share about LOVE and HOPE and belief in the Coming Kingdom won for us at Calvary.
Let’s begin this new day by ‘cracking a whip’ of praise. Thank You Father in Heaven for my life!
Let’s continue with thanks for HIS Strength to Stand, then thank Him for HIS Presence with us as we get up and live today.
Thank you little visitor of vibrant life and passion. Small powerful WHIPBIRD!
Can you hear my whip crack? And, it’s not just my creaking knees.!
Blessings to you ALL!
