Inspired by a magpie

Praise is the rehearsal of our eternal song. ~ Charles Spurgeon

“Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a
sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess His name”
(Hebrews 13:15).

Our voices are made as instruments of praise.
We  laud and magnify our Creator King.
Our destiny is to be part of a never ending chorus of praise
to the majesty of God.
Today may we join the birds in allowing our praises to rise freely
and frequently to the throne room of the King.


Recently I saw a magpie on the TV antenna next door, and was very
distressed to notice that it had part of its beak missing. When I
mentioned it to my next door neighbour, she reassured me that this
magpie had been around for some time, and in spite of its obvious
challenges, it was managing to eat and drink.
Two days ago, early in the morning, I was outside in my garden,
feeling a little sorry for myself. In the midst of this pity party,
I heard a most glorious bird song. It was of such beauty that it
caused me to look for the bird giving this wondrous greeting
to the dawn. There on the antenna next door was the magpie with
the broken beak. It’s melodious song so moved me that I
joined it in praising God. Still today, the song of
this magpie inspires me, and reminds me to praise God
even in the midst of my challenges.
