Morning Song

Not too long ago, I had been sitting outside on my back deck, enjoying the morning songs of the many birds that live in and visit the towering Ponderosa Pines that surround our peaceful country home.  I noticed that the Hummingbird feeder was empty, so I went inside to mix more food for my hungry little friends (I just love hummingbirds!).  As I was doing this, I was still watching them, along with the finches, robins, and chickadees zooming back and forth from my deck, where their feeders are to the trees.  I remember thinking about how much I love watching the birds and listening to them sing. I choose to believe that their serenades are just for me!  This is one of my great joys in life! I was then reminded that God is in all the details of our lives.  From the largest to the smallest.  Something that may seem so silly and insignificant to someone else, God will bring to me because He knows how much I love it and that shows me how much He loves and cares about me! 

Imagine, the Creator of all things, who spoke this world into existence, is on your side!  He cares about what you care about right down to the most minute detail.  He even wants us to give Him our burdens; those things that are weighing us down.  1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (NKJV).  God knows our hearts.  He knows our struggles.  He knows what makes us happy and what makes us sad.  He is our Creator, our Father, and the Comforter of our soul.  It truly amazes me that God, who is so very big, takes the time to make sure that every little thing that He has for us is sewn into the fabric of our lives.  I can just see His hand, with needle and thread, sewing every stitch. 

I pray that you can take the time today to sit back and really think about how God has been in the details of your life.  May He remind you of the big and little things that He has hand-delivered to you because He loves and cares for you so much!  What a loving Father we have!

*A few fun facts about Hummingbirds…

They can fly forward, backward, and upside down.  They are the only bird who can fly backward.

Their wings flap in a figure-eight pattern, which helps them to be able to hover.

They have no sense of smell.

The average weight of a Hummingbird is less than a nickel.
