So often we hear people say that “heard from God”. It’s such an odd thing. There have been two very distinct times in my life when I can say that is true. There were no bright lights or burning bushes, but anyone that has experienced that knows what I’m talking about. This morning, I awoke with a song on my mind and couldn’t stop singing it. That had to come from somewhere.
For reasons I won’t go into here, I had a two part stress test this morning. The funny thing is that I am not “stressed” about it at all. I think we’re chasing the wrong path, but it can’t hurt to make sure your heart is healthy I guess. Anytime you have tests done physically, I guess there is a part of you that is anxious or concerned. So to wake up with the beautiful reminder that “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know he watches me”, was so calming.
As I sat in the waiting room (with some radioactive material for the imaging running through my veins), I couldn’t help but be at peace knowing His eye IS on the sparrow. It might sound silly but part of me likes to think it was a reminder from my Mom set down that God is in control. We’ll never know these things this side of Heaven, but it helps. We all want to know that someone, somewhere is looking out for us. Whatever your facing today, “sing because you’re happy” and “sing because you’re free”. His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches you and me.
