Matthew 6:25-27

I am a believer that God proves himself in many miraculous ways.  I guess more so since my cancer, I see many of the ways God reveals Himself to me and when I do, it always amazes me.  Read on for an amazing true story.

Matthew 6:25-27 says -- "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 way in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"

All of us ... I mean ALL of us worry about things.  Since my cancer I've learned to let go and let God take care of me.  Why should I worry?  I know I am valuable to Him than anything including the birds. If you know me well, you know I love birds.  They intrigue me as I sit and watch their personalities, the way they eat, they way they get agitated at other birds, the way they love each other.  They seem to have no worry in the world.

I was at my brother's house yesterday checking on him as he is currently recuperating from a fall last week on a bit of black ice of which he fractured his ankle.  <He is not a happy camper>  Anyway he was telling me about this little hummingbird that was still here and had weathered the ice storm last week.  WHAT?  That is totally unbelievable.  I looked out in the backyard and there were two hummingbird feeders full of nectar that he is keeping for the little guy who got left behind when all the others left to find warmer temps.  About that time my sister in law said the hummer was on the feeder by the back door and sure enough there the precious little one was ... drinking the sweet nectar that he needs to stay warm.  Beautiful green feathers and not much bigger than a AA battery.  He perched for a moment on a bush limb closer to the window and fluffed up his little feathers and away he flew, staying low and out of the cold wind that we had.  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.  Well here you are with a first hand example of just how great our God is that does what He says.

We have no worries if we believe our precious Lord.  He knows what is going to happen in the next seconds of our lives.  He has it all under control.  I don't know about you but how very grateful that He is Lord of my life and loves me so much more than that little hummer that was left behind ... but He is still providing for the little guy through my brother.

I know it's been awhile since I've posted but I think about my blog all the time ... time time time ... it seems to get away from us, doesn't it.  My goal is to start posting more because my writing is something that I love doing.

For now love and blessings!
