I sat on my porch this morning. There’s nothing better than being surrounded by God’s creation when digging into his word and tuning into his voice. My dogs like it too. One of them, which never sits with me, interestingly wanted me to pick her up so she could see outside. I had thrown out some seeds for the birds, and many different varieties threw in for a bite to eat; it was so much fun to see! The squirrels stayed away because my dogs were guarding the area. I watched as the sun came up over the trees and lit up the sky. Then I heard him say that we shouldn’t worry about the turmoil in the news because his love is sufficient to carry us through these evil days. His plan will succeed no matter what we hear. Keep your chin up; there is a change in the air and a turning tide. Trust Him. He loves and provides for the birds and the creatures; imagine how much he loves and will provide for us.
For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 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 12:23-24
