HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW




It was a beautiful sunny day. His dad was taking him to the park. He was only 5 years old. He was looking forward to a great time. He finally arrived at the park. It was noisy. Children were running in every direction. Some were swinging. Some were on the sliding board. Some were playing on the hand bars. He wanted to play too but he was afraid. He didn’t want to leave his dad’s side to go to the play ground. He finally ran out on the field and went to the swings. He watched some boys swing for a while. Then there was an empty swing. He sat on the swing and pushed off. He was laughing and having a great time. He could see his dad watching him. Some people passed on the sidelines and all at once he couldn’t see his dad. He jumped from the swing and ran toward where his dad was standing earlier. Dad was there and he picked up his son and held him close. His dad could tell that the boy was afraid. He looked into his dad’s eyes and asked if he was watching him. His dad replied, “Yes I’m watching and I will not take my eyes off you.” That made the little boy happy and he ran back to the playground. It is a great feeling to know our Father in Heaven is watching over us. No matter the danger we face God is watching over us. His eyes are on us. Just like the words of the song – His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.

I loved this one, JT. Such a great illustration of our Father's love. Yes, we are His children - in all the best sense of the word. And He never, ever takes His eyes off of us.

He watches us - carefully and protectively. And when we're scared, all we need to do is run into His loving arms.

GOD BLESS!
