We run for the nearest shelter. Discouragement beckons. What would really preserve life, at times like that, is to run to God. One bird, not found among those on my lawn that day, is the dove. It symbolizes God's Holy Spirit. When we turn to the Holy Spirit, He gives us wings to rise above and soar over destructive storms. ... David said, "If only I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and find rest. How far away I would flee; I would stay in the wilderness. I would hurry to my shelter from the raging wind and the storm.” (Psalm 55:6-8 HCSB). Like birds, we can fly away when there is trouble to a hiding place in God, where we can rest, as He returns our peace. Pam Ford Davis. With God all things are possible!
