"Why should I feel discouraged, Why should the shadows come, Why should my heart be lonely And long for Heaven and home, When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He: His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me;"
Other songs have become more popular at church these days. Many are beautiful as well. Many have lovely words . Many are joyful.
Yet in certain times when life seems overwhelming and winter comes to the heart...there is wonderful comfort in the thought that the One whose eye is on the sparrow also is the One who watches me.
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" Matt: 6:26 (NIV).
Have a blessed week.
