When I was a kid, I loved catching dragonflies. The moment I catch one, I immediately tie it down with a string and I walk around with it to the delight and amazement of my friends. Today, looking back, I feel sorry for the dragonfly. Because it was tied down to a string, it couldn’t do what it was made to do which was to fly.
Could it be possible that you have the same predicament as that dragonfly?
Your career can’t seem to take off.
That sin you can’t seem to shake off.
That project you seem to always put off.
In short, you seem to be tied down to something that prevents you from really soaring to greater heights in your life.
What is that string that ties you down, my friend?
Is it a bad habit? A wrong mindset? A poor self-esteem? A painful memory? A nagging fear?
Can I make a suggestion? Offer it to Jesus today.
The Bible says:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
Stop tugging on that string in an effort to fly. Let Jesus cut that string for you. Invite Him into your heart and into your life today. Find rest in Him.
Then listen closely. He is whispering in your ear these very words:
“Child, you are meant to fly!”
