My dad’s favorite song was “His eye is on the sparrow and He watches over me”.
When I get discouraged the Lord reminds me of that song. I think of God’s mercy and love and it brings to mind how awesome God is. His creation is so vast, but He has time to spend with me.
I look at my body and everything about it points to His attention to detail. I try to find if there is anything I could add to my body that would make it more functional. Is there anything to make it more efficient? Can I remove anything without making me handicapped in any small way? Even something as small as a thyroid gland can affect the whole body. I consider the complexity of my eye that allows me to see. It is amazing! It just proves the scripture which says: “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).
This morning a song brought a tear to my eyes as I remembered the old hymn:
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like a sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot
Thou has taught me to say,
It is well with my soul*
I pray you will be at peace today knowing He cares for those things that
Yours in Christ,
