Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Why should I feel discouraged?
Why should the shadows come?
Why should my heart be lonely
and long for heaven and home,
when Jesus is my portion?
My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know He watches me;

Similar words were spoken by a bedridden friend to Civilla D. Martin in 1906 prompting her to write the words to this beloved hymn.

In God's eyes, no one is insignificant. He cares about you and the details of your life.

This truth should comfort us and bring us strength through even the darkest times of our lives.

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. 
Matthew 10:29-31

But it is not simply that we are valued by God. It is not even just that He watches over us. Through the sacrifice of His Son, Christ's death on the cross frees us from the power of sin and death. There is no greater power. And that power enables us to live victoriously!

I sing because I’m happy, (I’m happy)
I sing because I’m free, (I’m free)
for His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know He watches me.

May all of you who are facing the eye of the storm today find comfort and strength in these truths.

I couldn't decide which performance moved me more so you can find the beautiful Lynda Randle here, and the Mississippi Children's Choir here.
