God’s Wings

This is a story that was emailed to me.  It was a blessing to me and I would like to share it with you!  When I run across something like this I’m going to start putting it on here, and will let you know that I did not write it.   I don’t know who the person was that originated this story, but I know that they would be pleased to know that it is spreading to bless more people!  It is symbolic of  God’s love for all of us!


God’s Wings 
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park , forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno’s 
damage. One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. 
Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks 
scurried from under their dead mother’s wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her 
offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would 
rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had 
scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast….because she had been willing to die, so those under the cover 
of her wings would live.

‘He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge.’
(Psalm 91:4)

  1. Lewis, thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story~tears…the selfless love of God is manifested in each of His creatures. What a precious image of God’s sacrificial love for us is that little mama bird who gave her own life so that her little ones might live. God Bless you for sharing this, my friend!
