I found this today and had to share….
There is a wonderful story of a little bird walking on its scrawny legs. She looked around at all the animals that God created and noticed each of their unique features—the giraffe with the long neck, the lion with its powerful roar, and the deer running very fast. Sadly she wondered, “What is special about me?” She could only walk slowly with her little legs and two heavy wings on her back, weighing her down.
When suddenly a gust of wind came, pushing open her wings. She flapped and flapped, spreading out her wings, and then she began to soar into the sky. The wings weren’t weighing her down at all—they were her unique treasure!
Sometimes what we view as restricting, really contains our greatest power. It can have the potential to free us to be who we are and reach where we want to go in life.
