His eye is on the sparrow.
Sometimes I feel that I spend way too much time worrying about the things that I have no control over. When will I learn that I can trust God and that he is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that I could ask or think? I know my posts seem cliche almost from week to week, yet, just like old hymns, the Lord never tires of our heartfelt worship and praise. I still want to give God the ultimate respect. I have to remind myself of who my Father is. He is the author and the finisher of my faith. He is my strength. He is my song in a world that has lost the music. God is my redeemer. He is my healer. He is my provider. Like the choir sang, his eye is on the sparrow– a bird among so many other birds, yet the Father takes care of each one. they don’t worry about their next meal, but the Lord gave them instincts to know how to survive in the heat and in the rains.
I read back years into my old journals, and I think about how God has brought me through so may trials and tests of my faith, that I am in awe of how much he loves us. Without the Lord in my life, I would not be alive, today. He has blessed me with a good life filled with his mercies that are new every morning. I read over thirty years worth of my personal journey, and how the Lord delivered me out of all my fears. I don’t know why he spared me for such a time as this, but he did, yet will I praise him for he is a constant friend. I see where he has brought me from, and now I have much to praise him for the task set before me is one that will require trust in him.
There is no way that I can see a clear path ahead through the darkness, but I know enough that I will trust God for the ordered steps that I must take, and leave the outcome of this walk to him. Because of the testing and trials, I am stronger. I know that I can endure the waiting time that it takes for his promises to be fulfilled in my life.
It is true that the waiting is sometimes difficult, but the Lord desires that we trust him. He watches over us, and this week we can rest assured that the wait will be worth it..
