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.)

My Future

park pathway
The Lord has future plans for me that are good.
I trust in Him, for I know He will act.
He has plans that are exact.

He will give me an abundant life.
I do not have to worry,
or be in a hurry.

He will provide for me,
As He provides for the birds of the air.
I can depend on His care.

Therefore, I will delight myself in Him,
and trust in Him, for He does guarantee
the desires of my heart He’ll give to me.

As I trust Him and acknowledge Him,
He will direct my paths and make them straight,
And they’ll lead me right to Heaven’s gate.

My eye, nor ear, nor heart, cannot even imagine
what He has prepared for me,
Here on earth and in the Heavenly.

I have faith that He will reward me as I seek Him,
and love Him with all my heart, mind and soul.
That is my future, that is my goal.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)

write a poem that addresses the future, answering the questions “What does your future provide? What is your future state of mind? If you are a citizen of the “union” that is your body, what is your future “state of the union” address?

“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? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”  Jesus–Matthew 6:26–6:28-29
