“His Eye Is On The Sparrow…”

Why do I feel discouraged,

Why do the shadows come?

Why does my heart feel lonely

and long for heaven and home?

When Jesus is my portion;

a constant friend is He.

His eye is on the sparrow,

and I know He watches me.

His eye is on the sparrow,

and I know He watches me…

This is the song that keeps coming to me early this morning. I hear the birds chirping–they sound so happy and free–not a care in the world. I’m then reminded that I can feel that way too if I leave my cares with Him…
