Building the Bridge of LOVE - Don't You Think It's time?

 


Visitors: 501

One of the saddest times in any child's life is when for some reason they think one or both or their parents are going to be taken from them. In the mid-nineties on one of their tours Naomi Judd announced to the world that she had hepatitis and would retire from the country music business. Leaving her daughter Wynonna to sing on her own for the first time in her life.

I'm sure Wynonna could have easily packed her bags and headed back to some small town in Kentucky where she came from, however she didn't. While difficult as it may have been Wynonna, through some of the toughest times in her life, picked up the pieces of her life and continued what her mother and her had started many years before. In some ways this may remind us of how eagles push their young out of the nest teaching them to fly.

Just like the mother eagle pushes her young out of the nest, don't you think Jesus does the same thing to us? He pushes us out of our nest to see if we will have faith to fly. Our natural reaction is to just hide under some wing of protection of ours that we made up in our minds in hopes that life doesn't send us downward into something that we can't handle or pushes us out of our little comfort zones. Only to cry for our mother to save us. So we crawl back into our nests and say, that God doesn't care or life is not fair. Just the opposite of what Jesus really wants us to do.

Most of the time when we feel like this is because we are just being selfish and only thinking of ourselves and the devil has tricked us into thinking we are not worthy enough for God's grace. You see, the mother eagle didn't push her young out because she doesn't care for them, she does it because she loved them. Naomi Judd didn't wish this upon herself, yet she used it to help others around her to grow and fly. She also did it out of love.

In the midst of Wynonna's darkest moment instead of crawling into her shell and hiding under her mothers wings of protection she wrote this song. Or maybe in your darkest moment instead of thinking of yourself, think of Jesus writing this song for you.

"Love Can Build a Bridge"

I'd gladly walk across the desert
With no shoes upon my feet
To share with you the last bite
Of bread I had to eat
I would swim out to save you
In your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinkin
Let me show you what love means

Chorus
Love can build a bridge
Between your heart an mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time?
Don't you think it's time?

The next time you just want to crawl in your hole and hide under some false protection ask yourself, “Don't you think its time to build that bridge of Love, don't you think it's time?
