Good morning everyone,
A few mornings ago I was headed to work when I noticed a bunch of birds sitting completely still on an electrical wire and I had these thoughts. What are they thinking right now? Are they concerned about where their next meal is coming from or do they worry about being cold tonight? Immediately I thought of the Scripture in Matthew 6:26 and it says, '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?' They don't worry about the things that they can't control. How about you? Do you sit around and worry yourself about the things that you can't control? Do you consult Him regularly about helping you focus on the more important issues of the day? He wants you to be aware of the things that He created just for you to notice and praise Him for doing it! The next time you go outside, make sure and notice something that He created and ask Him to fill you with a sense of 'awe!' Those little birds are plentiful and forgotten for the most part but I felt as though He said, 'they were important enough to create for your enjoyment so you better start paying more attention.' Ask God to remind you, if you've forgotten, to be keenly aware of the detail that He has produced so you will be totally amazed! And then remember the last of that verse because it really identifies how much He cares about you!
Your brother in Christ,
