Be a Bumblebee

    “According to recognized aero technical tests, the bumblebee
    cannot fly because of the shape and weight of his body in
    relation to the total wing area. The bumblebee doesn’t know
    this, so he goes ahead and flies anyway” (James Hastings).
    A person who walks by faith and the bumblebee have much in common. Neither should be able to function by rational standards but somehow are able to soar above the facts and naysayers.
    If the bumblebee listened to the limitations posed on him by those who think they know it all, he would be no more than an insect, crawling on the ground. Eking out an existence amid the dirt, debris, and rocks, with earthworms as his companions.
    Instead he defies science, flutters his wings, and buzzes from flower to flower. Butterflies, bright sunshine, and soft breezes are his domain.
    Oh, what a difference a little faith makes. Faith in God and hope for a better tomorrow lifts us above the dreariness of today into a realm of light and laughter.
    Regardless of how your circumstances may appear or what the doctor says — or your accountant — or your employer — God is on the throne. “Now unto him that is able to abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” (Ephesians 3:20).
    If Peter could walk on water, we can walk through today. “Have faith in God!” (Mark 11:22).
