His Eye is on the Sparrow

As Christians, we all believe that God’s eye is on the sparrow…but this sparrow took an unfortunate drunken dive into the water.

And so it goes with us – we get busy with the daily demands of life until in our own stupor we realize that we thirst for the time to find peace, comfort, and solace. We need something greater than what we can achieve on our own. We need the hand of God on our busy lives.

Come unto me all who are weak and heaven laden and I will give you rest. Don’t wait till you are taking a nosedive…seek God’s call on your life.

For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know he watches me.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Warning Sounds…

We were eating lunch with friends today when cell phones rang out a loud warning sound throughout the restaurant alerting everyone to a tornado watch. This is not a common occurrence in Orlando.

I sit here now with storm clouds hanging low outside my window casting an ominous dark glow over our home. The lightening and thunder are rattling the walls. It doesn’t look good out there.

In the midst of all this chaos, I hear the birds singing. Maybe it’s their own weather watch system, but I don’t think so. They are simply singing out loud and going about their day. The beautiful and melodious sound of our feathered friends reminds me to sing out loud and to not worry. When the storms come…sing. When you are threatened…sing. When you are fearful…sing.

As the song goes…”His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me”.

I don’t know about you but I sing because I’m happy…
