An Eagle and a Bear

Psa 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
Psa 50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.

I met a woman in a chat on AOL some years back who told me her story. As a small child she was abused by a step father and it continued into her teen years. One day she decided to kill herself and walked into the wilderness, where she lived in Alaska. There was a swift and deep icy stream of water and a tree had fallen across the stream to make a bridge walkway. She walked out to the middle of the stream on that tree and paused, ready to throw herself to her death. She heard something to her left and a bear was standing on one end of the log and when she looked to the right, an eagle had landed on the other end of the log. She knew that this must have been from God; he sent the animals to her to let her know that He cared for her. This was a revelation and a turning point in her life, she did not die and she found God that day. She was still loving the Lord many years later as she shared this turning point in her life. God cares and he will even send his animals and birds to show you that he is there with you. Even a small butterfly may be a blessing from the LORD. You are not alone, he cares for you.

1Pe 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
