First of all, how awesome is that?! To be able to hold a baby birdie in the palm of your hand!!! What a blessing!
But when I read this post, I couldn’t help but think, “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me!”
I left a comment to this end on Bekah’s post, but THINK ABOUT THIS, dear sister!If Almighty, all-powerful God, Who created the entire universe and simply breathed out stars that are so big, that if you compared earth to a golf ball then compared that golf ball to the star, it would be the size of Mt. Everest—if that God cares enough about a clumsy little birdie with a penchant for flying into windows, that He has a young woman pop it’s little wing back into place so it can fly again—if He cares that much about a little defenseless bird, how much more does He care about YOU, who are worth MUCH more to Him than MANY sparrows?!?!!?!?!?!?!!??!!?!??!
While talking with my wise father about it, he brought out another interesting point: both that little birdie and also one of our chickens that my little sister Bethie just recently (and literally—it was so adorable!J) nursed back to health, hung around, kept coming back to, and even clung to it’s caretaker for comfort, nourishment, healing, and support while it was still sick. Once it’s wing or it’s eyes were healed, it flew away (to go do work to complete it’s original, created purpose!). The wounded bird clung to its savior for help until it received it!
Oh how much both of these examples can be applied to our lives as set-apart Princess Warriors for Jesus Christ!
If you do anything, dear sister, anything at all in response to this post, let it be that you take comfort and joy in knowing that Almighty God cares so phenomenally much about you! He loves you to pieces! He wants you to cling to and abide in Him until (and even after! Lol) you receive that healing comfort you so badly need!!!
Remember—Jesus cares so much for even one of the tiniest of His creations to a have a special young woman pop its wing back into place—So take heart, Dear One! You are worth MUCH MORE to Him than many baby birdies!!!!!
