For the Birds

Yesterday while parked at a truckstop in Missouri, I watched this little sparrow. 

It was feasting on a pizza crust that someone had tossed out.

I kind of think that I could see the little bird's joy in finding such a huge meal.

I am sure that some days life for the bird is not as rewarding.

You know, it is the same with us. Some days we struggle to find our blessings and other days we seem to be abundantly blessed. But it is the same God that always provides. 

Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread. And if we do so, then we need to trust that God knows what He is doing on the days that we seem to be looking for a little more. 

He loves His creation, right down to the most insignificant of the birds. He loves you too. Hang on to your hope in Him. Maybe your pizza crust will be there tomorrow.

Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? (Matthew 6:26 NASB)
