Provision

Three Sparrows

At a time when

Gatherings are discouraged

Sparrows meet together

Feasting on food provided

By their Father in heaven

Tanka

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26

(Seeing these birds in the parking lot at my local grocery was a great reminder that God will provide during these unstable times and like the birds I should not worry about what I will eat or drink.)

Purpose

Exodus 9:16 scripture

Raised up for what?

To show His power in you!

Declare His name

Everywhere you travel

That’s His purpose for you

Tanka

Based on Exodus 9:16 scripture where the Lord was speaking to Moses regarding His purpose in dealing with Pharaoh. Just as the Lord raised up Moses for that purpose, so has He done the same for all of us who believe.

We all have a purpose. He created each of us to fulfill His plan. Wherever we are today we can show forth His power as we declare His name. It’s not about us, it’s about Him.

“Love you.”

I say to Him,

My creator in heaven.

“Love you more” is His reply to me,

“Always.”

Cinquain

“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 1John 4:10 NLT

Everyone Has Their Days

Painting of Sunrise, Never Give Up text

Physically on earth

We will lose sometimes.

Yet, Spiritually,

We who are in Christ are winners,

For In Him is victory.

Tanka

Today, on earth, the groundhog didn’t see his shadow so Spring won and Winter lost.

Today on earth, at the Super Bowl, the KC Chiefs won and the San Francisco 49ers lost.

Today, somewhere on earth, someone in the world received Christ as their Lord and Savior and the devil lost.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ 1Corinthians 15:57

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1John 5:4
