Loving this from a devotional I read this morning:
“A wise bird knows that a scarecrow is simply an advertisement. It announces that some very juicy and delicious fruit is to be had for the picking. There are scarecrows in all the best gardens… If I am wise, I too shall treat the scarecrow as though it were an invitation. Every giant in the way which makes me feel like a grasshopper is only a scarecrow beckoning me to God’s richest blessings. (…) Faith is a bird that loves to perch on scarecrows.” (Joyce Meyer The Confident Woman Devotional)
Come on, ya’ll! It’s just a shirt stuffed with straw. Fear is for the birds!
