The other day as I was jogging around, I saw a bird lying on the ground and looked like it was injured and in so much pain. And so I picked it up gently and walked home. I planned to take the bird to the nearest vet to save it.
Sadly, the bird was already dead when we arrived at the vet. I was too late to save it.
This experience reminded me of a similar incident when I was young.
There was a bird with some blood at my cousin’s house and so we brought it to the nearest vet. It was a pigeon and fortunately, we were able to save it at that time.
Unfortunately, I was too late the other day.
So, this got me thinking. What is the spiritual meaning of an injured bird? When I was younger it never occurred to me that the heavens were telling me something with the bird we saved.
But now, what could have been heaven’s message with the bird I tried to save?

From a weak and injured bird, it was able to fly on its own eventually after it healed.
We can also transform or change even if we are going through the harshest tests just like the badly injured bird I saved when I was little.
