To keep my thoughts focused I intentionally hung an embossed wind chime right above the kitchen sink in the window. The picturesque chime portrayed a robin on a nest watching over her three blue eggs. It reminded me of my life, a Mom of three. Daily, it kept me focused, do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
I prayed often, God, show me where my new nest will be. Your Word says, do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows, more valuable, hmmm, I thought. Alright God, you provide twigs, grass, and hair for the birds to build their nests. Provide please what I need for my nest, after all I am more valuable than the birds. I prayed for a safe, small, clean and affordable nest.
God had already proved Himself over and over in my life. Facing drastic changes like losing my father, brother, and mother all hurt deeply. Plus, He was healing me of my emotional pain from the abuse. My life was in transformation mode. God revealed my life purpose to me and I anticipated His lead to where I was to live.
I heard of two rental houses. I checked them out. When I left each, fear had mounted. There had to be another route.
Do you believe you are more valuable than a sparrow?
