Birds Of The Air…

Birds Of The Air…

The gifts that reign down from our Father can not be understated. We are blessed beyond measure and should desire to make much about spreading His good Word through the reflection of Him in us.

A few weeks ago the sounds in my ears were that of city life – sirens several times a day, airplanes overhead, barking dogs, traffic, gun-shot, people being people creating the noise we are create in our daily lives, it was constant and rarely quiet. Today, when the window is open, none of this noise overwhelms the senses. Birds singing, an occasional car or truck and on rare occasions a dog barks. Mostly birds singing or absolute quiet. How the heart lightens, the mind becomes uncluttered and the Spirit is felt and known. It is as if the very Words of Jesus Christ himself spring to life…

Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? ~Matthew 6:25-27 NKJB

While we all pray and seek this to be true in our life, it is rarely that we achieve such a state of being. Worry seems to be one of the biggest hurdles we face with each step. Guilt of the past, fear of the future keeps God’s children locked out of the present. Being locked out of the present keeps us away from God, how I long to be with Him in the quiet moments of life, how I long to be in the quiet moment as the storm rages. Listening to, obeying the still small voice and following the Holy Spirits lead bathing in the loving Light that shines through our hearts when we get out of the way and let the birds of the air sing.

Either the Gospel is divine inspiration, the Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of Him, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
