A kite. Up there, bight and high. The tails streamlining behind like ribbons in little girls hair flowing when they run. The colors draw the eyes of people from miles around. All are staring up at the beautiful kite floating gracefully. Then it dips and twirls as the wind moves it from here to there, like a ballerina dipping and twirling in the finale of her show. The One guiding the kite gives a gentle tug, maneuvering the kite like a seasoned captain does his ship on the high seas- with ease and knowing. The string is taught. Sometimes the Guide lets the kite fly higher and sometimes brings it back down to a reality that might hurt, as it looks like it might crash to a halt. But only because the Guide wants to show that He is in control of this beautiful kite. Always. He wants you to know He is in control. No matter what.
You, who flits in the wind thinking it’s your own talent, don’t realize that the wind is what moves you. You, who pulls against the string, trying to make your own way, don’t realize that the string is what keeps you grounded. You, who thinks you can see all from your place in the sky, don’t realize that your Anchor to earth, sky, and everything in between is the One who set you free to begin with. So when you want to take off and do it your own way, don’t forget the Three and the One. He is Who makes it possible to be a Beautiful Kite so you can be free and SOAR.
You are like a Beautiful Kite. So remember, that as an altogether insignificant and important beautifully crafted kite, you won’t last without the Wind, String, and Guide to keep you soaring and moving all for His glory just as you were designed to.
