Even the Sparrow Knows . . .

|

The other day the girls were watching a large group birds.  They had stopped to eat in our yard before continuing the next lag of their migrating.

As we stood there watching them flying about and eating, I asked the girls if they could count how many there were.  “No, certainly not!” was their answer.  These birds were moving around way too fast and there were way too many of them. 

Then it hit me.

I can’t even count all these birds.

YET God knows each one of them.  Not just knows them as in a generic knowing that they exist– He REALLY knows them.  He know where they’ve been and where they are going.  He knows their physical condition.  He knows when one of them falls.  He knows them.  He sees them.

Then I realized again how great my God is!!

Look at the birds of the air… Your Heavenly Father feeds them… How much more does He care for you?!  How much more does He care for me?!

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?   Matthew 7:26

The little things I worry about.  The big things that stand in my way.  How much does He want to care for those things.  He takes care of the birds.  He can take care of me.  He can take care of my friends.

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.  

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  

Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-21

Sparrows- Jason Gray

You can’t add a single day by worrying

You’ll worry your life away

Oh, don’t worry your life away

You can’t change a single thing by freaking out

It’s just going to close you in

Oh, don’t let the trouble win

You may feel alone

But you’re not on your own

If He can hold the world, He can hold this moment

Not a field or flower escapes His notice

Oh, even the sparrow knows

He holds tomorrow

Lean in and it’s hard to miss

Everything can change

When you make it His

Oh, He wants to carry it

Carefree in the care of God

When you let it go

You’ll find that He’s enough

Oh, you never leave His love

You don’t walk alone

If He can hold the world, He can hold this moment

Not a field or flower escapes His notice

Oh, even the sparrow knows

He holds tomorrow

There’s not a single star that’s out of place

There’s nothing broken He can’t remake

If you long for hope when you’re afraid

Oh look at the sparrow

Look at the sparrow

If He can hold the world, He can hold this moment

Not a field or flower escapes His notice

Oh, even the sparrow knows

He holds tomorrow

Even the sparrow knows

He holds tomorrow

 As the birds fly away again God softly whispers. . . Fear not, you are more valuable than many sparrows.
