744th -- I'm Flying Daddy


Have you ever taken a moment to think of the many blessings that surround
you? If we do, we would soon find how abundantly blessed we truly are and
how much we have to be thankful for. Even though it is easy for us to 
murmur and complain about the temporary sufferings that are in our path, 
we should be disciplined enough to look past these temporary setbacks and
be thankful to the Lord for the long-term gifts that have surrounded us 
our entire life. What type of gifts am I referring to? A beautiful gift
that I am thankful for is the gift of sight. I am thankful that I have 
the ability to see the beauty that surrounds me. I am thankful that I 
have ears to hear the majestic sound of God's creation. I am thankful for
my salvation, my family, my friends, my home, my health. Have you been 
thankful? Think of the blessings that God has given to you. Give thanks
to the Lord and let Him know that you are appreciative for every gift in 
your life. (Psalm 139:14) (Psalm 103:1-5) (Matthew 10:8) (Psalm 30:11-12)

I hope this message encourages your heart to be thankful for everything in
life. Appreciate what you have and do all that you can to let those who 
are without experience the gifts that you’ve received.


Once upon a time there was a little boy who was raised in a orphanage. The
little boy had always wished that he could fly like a bird. It was very 
difficult for him to understand why he could not fly. There were birds at
the zoo that were much bigger than he, and they could fly. “Why can't I?”
he thought. “Is there something wrong with me?” he wondered.

There was another little boy who was crippled. He had always wished that 
he could walk and run like other little boys and girls. “Why can't I be 
like them?” he thought.

One day the little orphan boy who had wanted to fly like a bird ran away 
from the orphanage. He came upon a park where he saw the little boy who 
could not walk or run playing in the sandbox. He ran over to the little 
boy and asked him if he had ever wanted to fly like a bird.

“No,” said the little boy who could not walk or run. “But I have wondered
what it would be like to walk and run like other boys and girls.”

“That is very sad.” said the little boy who wanted to fly. “Do you think 
we could be friends?” he said to the little boy in the sandbox.

“Sure.” said the little boy.

The two little boys played for hours. They made sand castles and made 
really funny sounds with their mouths. Sounds which made them laugh real 
hard. Then the little boy's father came with a wheel chair to pick up his
son. The little boy who had always wanted to fly ran over to the boy's 
father and whispered something into his ear. “That would be okay,” said 
the man.

The little boy who had always wanted to fly like a bird ran over to his 
new friend and said, “You are my only friend and I wish that there was 
something that I could do to make you walk and run like other little boys
and girls. But I can't. But there is something that I can do for you.”

The little orphan boy turned around and told his new friend to slide up 
onto his back. He then began to run across the grass. Faster and faster he
ran, carrying the little crippled boy on his back. Faster and harder he 
ran across the park. Harder and harder he made his legs travel. Soon the 
wind whistled across the two little boys' faces.

The little boy's father began to cry as he watched his beautiful little 
crippled son flapping his arms up and down in the wind, all the while 
yelling at the top of his voice, “I'M FLYING, DADDY. I'M FLYING!”

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

1 Corinthians 3:8-9 “Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and
every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we
are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.”

Psalm 37:1-5 “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou 
envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down
like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do 
good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of 
thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall
bring it to pass.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 “And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for
thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest
upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in 
necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I
am weak, then am I strong.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus 
Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth
us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are 
in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

Romans 8:35,37 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall 
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or 
peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors 
through Him that loved us.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
