A sparrow falls, your children cry, and You care Lord

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with His comfort through Christ.” ~ 2 Corinthians 1:3-5, NLT

What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” ~ Matthew 10:29-31, NLT

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are?” ~ Matthew 6:25-26, NLT

Even Though You Are Almighty God,

You Care Lord

Father, I love Your tenderness — I need Your tenderness. I’m strengthened in the battle with Your mighty power, but I am comforted by Your tender watch-care. Even though You are Almighty God, when a sparrow falls or Your child cries, You know and You care, Lord,

You are faithful to draw near to the brokenhearted and those who are crushed in Spirit. What a wonderful God You are, full of compassion … gracious, and kind. Your goodness goes before You in all things. I’m so thankful for You!

When my heart is breaking and my thoughts run amuck I sense Your presence, for Your eye is upon me. You are the God who sees me. You know, and You care, Lord.

God knows when the sparrow falls

As I sit by my window in the morning light and watch the sparrows and cardinals feast at the table I set for them, I think of Your watch-care over them — how You know when a sparrow falls. I think of Your watch-care over me and Your awareness when tears stream down my cheeks.

Your love is amazing to me — and wonderful. Astounding. The magnitude of Your love far exceeds my understanding, yet, I experience it every. single. day. How good You are, Lord! With You by my side, I have no need to fear an uncertain future. You go before me into my tomorrows and lead me in Your paths of righteousness for Your Name’s sake.

You Are the God Who Sees Me

and Knows All About It

On You I can rely — and I do.

On You I can place my trust — and I do.

My hope is in You, Lord, for You care for me. Blessed be Your holy Name. I give You praise.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen — let it be so
