Sometimes I feel like a Sparrow

only a sparrow blog

 

Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.”

“Only a sparrow” I observe
as I turn in disinterest from
the bird feeder outside my kitchen window

“Only a sparrow . . .”
Did I really say those words?
What was I thinking?

Jesus tells me “Your Father knows
when one of them
falls . . .

Aren’t you worth more than that?”
Making his point –
He will care for
me.

I look at my future
known only by
Him

I trust in the One who knows
when a sparrow falls. . .
knowing it’s safe to feel like a
sparrow.

A couple of months later, I was wondering if this was really true.  Many days I wondered if I believed it anymore, but gradually I came to know it was.
