On an early morning walk, my husband and I came across a Pileated Woodpecker.
The bird was hammering away at its food on a tree along our path.
I stood amazed at the bird’s zeal to go after what he was looking for. I also marveled at God’s creativity. The woodpecker’s tongue is actually three times larger than it’s beak and wraps around its brain. God in His sovereign wisdom, created the bird with a unique way to protect its brain from injury.
make me this determined.
Make me zealous for your work,
all along trusting your sovereign hand of protection.
