Baby bird fell out of nest

One day as I was walking into the Men’s center I noticed a baby bird on the ground; 2men that witnessed the event stated, it fell out the nest and continued walking by it without any concern. This situation made me think that there are times in life when tribulations make us feel without hope, like a baby bird on the ground. It is only when we declare ourselves hopeless when the mercy of God deliver us from perishing in our affliction. After some minutes a staff member from the men’s center came to the rescue of the baby bird and placed it in his hands and with a lot of patience finally placed it back where it belonged. Every day I thank God for His mercy and for the blessing of working in a Rescue Mission.

“My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me”
