“My soul longs, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself where she places her young by Your altars, O LORD of Hosts, my King and my God. How blessed are those who dwell in Your house; they are ever praising You. Selah! (Ps 84:2-4)
After two months of lockdown, we shall have church service tomorrow in the sanctuary. The brethren in charge of cleaning the house of God came this morning with buckets and detergent, and made everything spotless. God bless them! My husband and I live in the church’ premises but we miss the brethren coming together to serve and worship God. During this lockdown a pair of sparrows made their nest to raise their babies in the street light in the church’ parking lot. The cover was broken and they just took advantage of a quiet and safe spot to become our ‘free tenants’. You see, even the little birds appreciate the presence of the Holy Spirit! Until their babies fly away, we shall leave the nest there. Kindness is more important than esthetics. I believe that the God that helps these little birds, will help you too and provide for your needs! Dear Brethren, Praise the Lord!
(In the pictures: 1-The birds and their nest… 2-the sanctuary sparking clean waiting for the brethren to come tomorrow)
May all be cleansed by the Holy Spirit.
Amen! God bless you, Mary Ann!
I so love this story! I was reminded when we lived in Warri of speaking this sparrow story to the girl on our staff. She had never thought of such a tender Father God who would allow birds to build a place on His altar. It stunned her and touched her. What an awesome Father we serve. If we watch for Him daily, His displays His glory in so many ways, and it is all done in LOVE! Oh by the way, our staff girl began to see creation in a whole new way! God expanded her tent! What a awesome Father we have!! What an awesome Saviour!
Thank you for your encouraging words, so few these days… God bless you Cheri!
