I’m listening to a woodpecker.
Tap-tap-tap. Pause. Tap-tap. Pause. Tap-tap-tap. On and on and on!
The woodpecker has the powerful combination of faith and persistence.
Jesus said, “Look at the birds…your Heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6:26)
He might not find success after hours in my tree. He may move to another tree. But he will not quit. So he will win.
Sometimes, I get really tired of trying, only nothing happens.
But I’m encouraged by Jesus’ words, and what the woodpecker does.
