The sun’s rays were shining through the trees onto the path in the woods as I walked with my friend one day last week. She and I found a bench, sat down and filled our hands with bird seeds and held them out, waiting for some chick-a-dees to come for breakfast. The only takers: two cardinals lighted a few feet away to which we tossed a few seeds. A little farther on the path we stopped again as several tufted-tit mice were flying from branch to branch. Holding out our filled hands once again and standing still we waited for our guests. After several “fly byes” one by one they braved landing on our fingers, grabbing one seed at a time in their beak and taking it to a branch to enjoy their meal. It was such a joy to watch these precious little creations of God, to feel their tiny feet grab hold of our fingers and to look into their grateful eyes.
What an awesome God (Creator) we have! That morning, just taking in all the beauty and enjoying God’s tiny creatures once again reminded me of God’s care for each one of us. Every day God holds out His hands full of blessings waiting for us to take the time to grab hold and enjoy all the things He wants to give us. We just need to be like those little birds and know that we can trust Him, know that He loves us and that He will give us just what we need.
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Ps. 84:11
“But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:19
Thank you, Lord.
