This is a beautiful time of year! Each day Spring gently approaches a little more. I lay in my bed as a new day dawns, fresh and full of promise and I listen to voices.
For several months the days have begun in silence as the world was hushed by winter. Now the happy voices of the birds of the air come together, a new one each day adding to the choir of praise which wakes us from our sleep.
Some rough and hardy birds remain through the winter protected by the extra feathers God gives for insulation. Other birds fly to warmer climates for a time. Like clockwork, they return. They know nothing of how the winter up north has been while they were away or what temperatures they will return to.
Day by day new birds see the calendar and
make their way back north.
The time is now no matter what the weather.
What a lesson in trust. As they fly the air gets colder, they press on. Not knowing how long the landscape will remain desolate, and where they will find food. Yet, they return, they don't turn back.
God tells us to live without worry. Trust Him in all circumstances and for all things. When you begin to feel concern approaching be reminded by the birds flying by. Put your Hope in God. He's not only trustworthy but loves you so much, He provides abundantly. (JH)
Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
