Hello dear ones! I want to share with you this insightful article on worry and how to get rid of it. Also I want to share a thought that came to me, an avid bird watcher.
Please check out this awesome article by Jaime:
God blesses me with birds. In recent years I have seen how God cares about the little things. Whenever I see a bird in my yard I get ecstatic. I often text my mom and husband to tell them we have birds in the yard. I will stop homeschool and call my son to the window so we can watch the birds. The other day I was talking on the phone with my mom and telling her how we haven’t had any birds at our new bird feeder. My son and I painted the bird feeder specific colors that are supposed to attract certain birds. So I was disappointed that I hadn’t seen any. After I got off the phone, I was sitting at the table doing my devotions when I looked up and saw a cardinal making it’s way to the top of our signs (seen in the pic) and finally up to the bird feeder. I texted my people 😉 and I called Michael in to have a look. I praised God for bringing me such joy. Sometimes I can get super depressed and worried. But it doesn’t take much to lift my spirits. God knows that birds and other little creatures make me very happy. I’m always running into little animals. It’s kind of ridiculous how attached I got to Harold, the turtle we found and kept for a night. I’m a very tender hearted person.
I also deal with OCD, depression, and sometimes paralyzing anxiety. Jamie’s article on anxiety hit home and really encouraged me. I pray you read it. It also brought to my mind the birds. Birds are unique. For some reason many people have the desire to feed the birds. We leave out bird feeders and we feed the ducks at the park. That desire isn’t as widespread for other creatures. Not many people like feeding the squirrels or opossums! I believe it comes down to God looking out for the birds. What a neat thought! And God loves us even more than the birds. We are way more valuable to Him.
God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
