…And I know He watches me (inspired by a hymn)


Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Fathers care.
Matthew 10:29 (NIV)

His Eye Is On The Sparrow
by
Civilla D. Martin,
and  Charles H. Gabriel 
1905
                

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come? Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home…

His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears...

Discouragement comes. There are days when I am strong, wise, and wonderful, and others where despite faith, I am flawed, frail, and beautifully human. Shadows remind us that despite discouragement, we are not, have never been alone. If we could do it all without God, we would seek His face. Our power is in our connection to Him; we can do nothing alone. Because we know there something better, something larger and beyond ourselves that sustains us, even when I am weary and sad, I do not lose hope like those who have none. You see…Jesus is my portion..My constant friend is He: His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;

The songwriters tell us…
"Let not your heart be troubled," His tender word I hear, And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears; Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see; His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

sing because I'm happy, I sing because I'm free, For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

He watches me, and I am no longer afraid. Even in my uncertainty, I have soul assurance that God is good.
