Advent 2021: His Eye Is On the Sparrow by Judith Watkins


"So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

-Matthew 10:31


11th Day After Christmas

His Eye Is On the Sparrow

One afternoon a car rear-ended my beloved Toyota Corolla. At the moment of impact, I heard the song "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" on my radio. I began to lift my hands in praise to God because I was not seriously injured.

We sometimes ask ourselves “where is God?” when we hear about accidents, racial injustice, deaths from the pandemic and other tragedies. God is calling us to walk more closely with Him. He wants those who do not know him to find Him. Because God is omnipotent, He knows what is going to happen in our lives. He allows the storms to come, and He shows up in the midst of the storm.

We might not see or feel God's presence, but He is making the crooked places straight for our good. His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.


Thank you God for protecting me. Amen
