Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! Luke 12, 24
I believe I qualify for a PhD in worrying, if there is any institution out there that awards such degrees. What an energy drain! How many hours of sleep have I wasted on What-If’s. When I read this yesterday, it was as though I heard God telling me to look back on my life. Oh, there have been difficult times, fear-provoking situations such as when I went to nurse in San Salvador after a horrible earthquake in 1986. But God has never left me without his watchful care.
How is it that the birds, all creatures of this beautiful earth we call home, go through their short lives worry-free. The answer is simple. They live in the present moment. To this we add trust. Trust that God will, indeed, provide.
What kind of things keep you awake at night? How do you deal with worry, with fear.
My husband and I like to help God in providing for his small creatures. Here are a few photos of the stunning visitors to our feeders.
There are so many more photos I would love to share but I’d like to save some for the future.
