“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 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?
Matthew 6:25-26

It’s getting warmer in New York, so we have been opening our windows at night to let in the cool night air. Right around 3:30 a.m. it seems like I have to change positions and I wake up to the sound of birds. Birds? Up already?

This morning I was walking outside, talking to the Lord, when I noticed the birds. All around me. I stopped and admired the colors. Even the blackbirds had some blue on them. They were flying down and getting worms or whatever else they eat from the grass. It occurred to me how God thought to give us birds and they start their singing at 3:30 a.m.! They really don’t know if they will find food, or what the day will bring, but they are happy and God made them FOR us. This entire world and everything in it was made FOR us!

There are over 10,000 bird species in this world with a diversity of colors and patterns! Wow! All for us and our enjoyment.

Our heavenly Father feeds the birds so just imagine how much he cares for us! “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Rom 8:32)

When you see a bird today, that's your reminder that God loves you so much! No worrying! No complaining! Jesus has provided life abundant (John 10:10) so spend some time thanking Him, even for the birds!
