After continuing to think of all the life lessons I have been taught by just tending to eggs, I asked myself this specific question:
“Why do I lose faith when God doesn’t give me exactly what I pray for right when I think I need it?”
And so, since that day I have reminded myself multiple times that I should continue pouring (not necessarily water) but faith and love on those who need it most. Even when God doesn’t grant me with what I have most recently asked for I need to continue pouring out his love. In Lamentations he tells us to do just that.
Pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. - Lamentations 2:19 NIV
It’s as though I began questioning myself as to why I could “lose faith” in a God great enough to create tiny chickens in each egg. As if his miracles are not already miraculous enough he has certainly grasped my attention throughout these 21 days. (The estimated incubation period for regular sized chicken eggs.)
Often I am more inspired by the back story instead of simply “hatching eggs”. I hope my story will encourage each of you to continue to pour God’s grace on one another and that it awakens your heart as much as it did mine.
I am yearning to see what other lessons God will teach me through chickens - of all things, once they hatch!
