That I should pray and not give up
The Bible made it plain
But when problems seemed too great
I often just complained
Till as I sat alone one day
A sparrow hopped right down
With just one leg he seemed so odd
As he ate the crumbs he’d found
Then when he had finished lunch
He started up to sing
And when the breeze began to blow
He lifted up His wings!
One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.
Luke 18:1 NLT

Oh, the lessons that God gives us through His magnificent creation!
Thanks for stopping in and commenting! I have noticed recently that in the Psalms, David points out God in all the big things (Mighty Seas, the sun moon and stars or lightning bolts) – while Jesus pointed us to seeds and sparrows and sheep. Of course, we serve a gigantic God who is bigger than we can imagine but I seem to feel closest to Him knowing he counts every hair on my head and puts my tears in a bottle.
Sparrows with one leg would still sing and fly. That challenges me as well. Pete
I am not sure why but some of my biggest lessons come from God’s tiniest critters.
