White-breasted Nuthatch

Psalm 126:4
"Restore our captivity, O Lord,
As the streams in the South."

Courting male carries foot to female, performs bowing and singing ritual with head feathers raised, tail spread. (Birders Handbook Ehrlich, Dobkin, Wheye)

The White-breasted Nuthatch eats from the tree by standing upside down on the bole of the tree and going down the tree to find bugs to eat.

There is much that is stolen from us in life. We can regain what God has promised as we learn to walk with Him in His fullness. The ways of God are often upside down from the ways of man. Don't asume you know what God wants. Listen to His word and learn from Him.


  1. Love this teaching Scott. I think we all struggle with believing that we see clearly when in fact, we see dimly (! Cor. 13).
    Lord help us to see from your perspective rather then man's perspective.

  2. People often put God in a box. Or a template. Jesus lived showing He is more interested in people than the structured meeting. Though He did not abandon going to Synagogue.
