Why Struggle?

This morning while I was at my desk, I glanced out the window to watch a bird walking up a tree and it appeared to be struggling.  As I continued to watch it, the question came to mind, “Why would that little bird be struggling, when it could just fly?”  Then, I was reminded that I sometime do the same thing, when I could just turn to God and give Him my seeming problems.

John 16:33 reads, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”

When I looked back the little bird had flown off and I realized he had just been getting insects for food from under the bark.  The human scene can be so deceiving!
