Jesus says; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10: 31.

I wanted to get this blog out because hopefully, Winter is gone and Spring has sprung.

It was when we had this last snow storm, ground was covered, it stayed cold, really cold,

10-12 below 0. Stayed that way for several days here in our area, perhaps your area also.

As my husband and I was backing out of our garage, one morning, and as we have a very large Holly bush on the left side of our garage, I saw something I could not believe. This was the sight I saw;

There were hundreds of sparrows picking the Holly berries off of that totally covered Holly bush.

I had often wondered earlier in the season, ( that was very unusual for that Holly bush to be so budded out with it's Holly berries) . I had never seen it that full or at that time of the year

since we have lived here. Always Fall or sometimes in Spring. "God had His plan."

Then, I begun to cry inside my heart as I reflected back on Gods word.

Matthew 10:31;" fear you not therefore, you are of more

value than many sparrows".

Hundreds of sparrows cleaned the Holly berries off that bush in a matter of minutes.

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 more valuable than they?

How many times do we worry about what are we going to eat, what are we going to wear? Matthew 6:25-34

Verse 33 has always summed it up for me on my worrying:

"But seek you first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you".

I saw that because the ground was so covered with snow...................

the ground was so frozen, that the birds could not find food. O, yes, my great God had prepared all along for that fully budded out Holly brush, (at this unusual time) to be the source of food for the many sparrows .

It was picked totally clean by the hundreds of sparrows in just the short amount of time we were backing out of the garage.

Friends, as the Matthew scripture says; If God supplies for the many sparrows, and we are of more value than them , my how valuable we are to our Heavenly Father.

My, how He will ALWAYS SUPPLY our need, just as He supplied food for the many sparrows during that frozen ground winter snow storm.

Do you, my friend see just how great your worth is to the GREAT I AM?. Other scriptures repeats; "He know the number of hairs on your head. Luke 12:7. " "He keeps track of all my sorrows, He collects all my tears in His bottle Psalms 56:8 He records each one in His book."

YES, friend, YOU HAVE GREAT WORTH!. If you are His, He is yours, you are of great worth.

John 15:7 says: If you abide in me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

That takes me back to the many sparrows. They never worried about that snow , frozen ground . They knew Jesus would supply their food as they were not able to get it from the frozen ground. And, my heavily budded Holly bush was prepared ( at an unusual time) to be so budded out , loaded with red Holly buds" for just such a time as this".

YES, friend, YOU HAVE GREAT WORTH!. If you are His, He is yours, you are of great worth.

Gods word is full of His Promises, just as He provides our needs, He provides in unusual ways.

For the King and His Kingdom. Sarah Tyler-Author.
