“The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him.”
Consider the lilies of the field whose bloom is brief: we are as they; like them we fade away, as doth a leaf.
Consider the sparrows of the air of small account: our God doth view whether they fall or mount-He guards us too.
Consider the lilies that do neither spin nor toil, yet are most fair: What profits all this care and all this toil?
Consider the birds that have no barn nor harvest-weeks: God gives them food: much more our Father seeks to do us good.
By Christina Rossetti
The LORD is good. Don’t forget, no matter what you may be going through. He is good and He knows our anxieties and needs before we even ask of Him! He tells us in Matthew 6:25-34 to examine the birds and see how they’re cared for. Our heavenly Father feeds them. He asks us, “Are you not much better than they?” Well are you? Of course you are! 🙂
He also tells us to consider or study, think about the flowers, how they grow. They don’t work hard to become what they are. They just naturally have the beauty God created them to have. Just as God “clothes” them with beauty, He will provide for us the necessities of life that we need for our families. He will clothe us spiritually and physically.
He says, “Just keep your eyes on ME.” (paraphrased) “Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness (goodness); and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Give God a chance to show you His goodness. Maybe that means waiting for Him, seeking Him. You can never go wrong by doing what He says.
I also found this link (below) to a bird feeder craft you might have fun making yourself, with your kids, or grand-kids. Blessings!
