A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings. Always believe in yourself – Anynomous
I read above saying this morning, I could not help but think about it all day. The saying is very profound about confidence. I started watching the birds in my backyard. I notice birds will fly and stand on the branch and never circles around to do so. The bird has every confidence that the branch will hold their weight and will not make them fall. Even when the branch breaks, the bird will fly before it hits the ground.
As human, we are different, we have doubt and unbelief. We tend to calculate a lot of things in our lives. We will doubt the branch, if it can hold our weight, if it will break, the branch is too small, etc. We don’t trust ourselves to just make the landing.
We doubt our potential because we are afraid to make the first step, afraid of failures. A lot of times, others see our potential but we can’t because we don’t believe in ourselves, our own wings.
If we put our mind into something, and have all confidence that we can do it, a lot of times we make it to the other side. We can believe on our own wings 🙂 The bird only has its wings to back them up, but we have God to back us up 100% if we believe in ourselves and trust Him, because He will not let us fall. He is always there to catch you because He loves you very much that He gives His son for you 🙂
