I read this short piece some ten years ago and it has been among my favorite articles I read at least twice every year. Although I published it in 2011 and repost in 2012 & 2013, I feel within my spirit that someone needs this message. I trust this post will refresh you in your walk of faith.
“Have you ever seen a worried bird with deep wrinkles on its brow,or one with bleary blood-shot eyes caused by sleepless night of worry?
Have you ever seen a bird worried about who would pay mortgage on its nest?
Birds don’t worry or fret because they have absolute trust in God for their safety and survival.
If birds are safe in His hands, WHAT ABOUT YOU?
The Lord says ” Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” Matthew 6:25-26
Be cheerful as the birds. If you worry and waver in the day of trouble, you may miss God’s plan and opportunity for deliverance. He has great plans for you and He will fulfill them.” -Christian Women Mirror
