Sparrows

get-attachment

This little guy was hanging out in my backyard and I heard the words to this old song…

“When Jesus is my portion,
A constant friend is he.
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches over me.”

Sometimes we live our lives with the blinders on and say things like, “Where are you? Are you anywhere out there? Can’t you see me? I need to see you.”

But I can’t help but ponder the question I ask myself, “Why would I see this ordinary little bird and hear those words in my heart?

I think it’s because he’s saying, “Look and see. Take your blinders off. I’m right here, in the eyes of your heart.”

My reach can sometimes be so short,
but his reach is stretched far and wide.

Do you have blinders on the eyes of your heart?
Oh, how he wants you to remove them today.
Choose to do so.

What is the price of two sparrows — one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows. ~Matthew 10:29-31
