The Branch

There’s a story about a king who bought two beautiful eagles to fly above his kingdom. He hired a bird trainer to work with the Eagles. The trainer set up an area with large perch made from a cottonwood branch. One of the birds would soar and fly until the trainer called him back. The other bird would fly low, circle around and land back on the branch. No matter what the trainer did he couldn’t get the second bird to fly very far. The trainer went to the king and told him about his dilemma. The king made a call for assistance and a local farmer stepped up and said he could help. The next day when the king looked up, he saw both birds were flying high above the castle. The king called the farmer and asked, “what did you do?” The farmer replied, “I cut off the branch!”

Sometimes God will march into your life and cut the branch you are sitting comfortably on so you have no choice…
you will either sit  on the ground or soar above the clouds.
