As God gently stirs our nests
To encourage growth within…
We leave our comfort zones
And for God’s kingdom souls we win.
Growth can be a painful task
As it challenges our mind,
But once we learn to obey and move
We leave our past behind.
As we follow God’s commands
We grow in grace and love;
To increase our knowledge of Christ
And God’s will from heaven above.
As the mamma eagle stirs her nest
To encourage flying lessons;
Her young cry out in pain once more
Until they endure many sessions.
And once they learn to fly with ease
And leave their comfort nest;
They are thankful for the challenge which
Taught them to express their best.
We take creation’s example to see
As we train our heart and soul;
That all growth requires effort
For true blessings to unfold.
