He Will Care for Us — 21 Comments

  1. What a precious heart you have, Janis. I remember the time my boys and I chased a three baby robins around our yard to return them to their nest. But they kept falling out! It was time. We nervously kept an eye on them…ready to chase away any predators if needed. Finally, we saw them: mommy and daddy. They called their young together in the safety of an evergreen tree and kept the brood fed and sheltered there until they were able to fly. It was an amazing example of God’s brilliance in creation for me.

    Thank you for sharing this…and bringing back a sweet memory for me!

  2. Oh Janis! I have chills….what a beautiful story and what a perfect reminder of this Word! Honestly, I’m amazed how God places these things in our lives that are just UNMISTAKEABLY Him if we are willing to notice!
    I hope that sweet little bird lives and yes…we are indeed LOVED! Peace Janis!

  3. Oh, what a sweet post. Thank you for caring for this bird and in that showing us how much more God cares for me. I don’t think we always get it. But, simple actions like this help bring it home!

  4. Blessings Janis, What a beautiful heartfelt story portraying your precious love of God’s creation and His love for us! Precious photos! Thank you for taking care and I pray that God will continue to care for each of us from this abundant love.

    Hoping the little one survives! Love the joint effort and compassion of you and your hubby. Although I can’t think of any fears I may need to surrender today, I will cast all my fears upon Him if any arise because I will think of sweet little bird entrusted to you and your care and God’s promises in His Word! He really does know, He cares and He is so there when we fall out of our nest. Thankful that His hands are as loving as yours!

    Peace and love,

  5. Janis, such a compassionate act to care so lovingly for God’s creation. And a perfect devotion to remind us of God’s love and concern for us. Happy WFW!

  6. What a wonderfully visual way to be reminded of how much He loves and values us, Janis.
    You’re right… Even those times we cannot feel His presence, He is there!
    Thank you!
    Have a fantastic day!

  7. Thank you for the reminder. We tend to let life’s challenges overwhelm us and we forget now loving and compassionate our God is.

  8. This is so precious, this story and how tenderly God also cares for us. I always have some fears to surrender, too, and it’s coming to mind, right now. This is what I need today, thank you for this.

  9. A beautiful post and analogy of God’s love for us. I pray the little bird grows stronger each day.

  10. Thank you, all for your concern for our little adopted bird. His eyes are open today but his nest has been jostled and the bush has a much bigger hole in it. Waiting for Hubby to come home and figure out what is best for baby bird.

    Your comments blessed my day.

    From My Heart to Yours,

  11. First of all – baby anythings are cute. No? Oh, this story gets my heart too. And amen – if you care – how much more does God care – and then how much more does he care for us. This was a joy to read Janis – thank you – and God Bless and keep you and all of yours this day.

  12. Janis – This was just too precious. I so hope that baby bird makes it. You and your husband are so sweet – your tender hearts are such a witness to the love of our Father. Yes, what a wonderful lesson. He cares, for all of His creation – He cares for us, more than we’ll ever know.


  13. Michelle, Nice to know someone else had a similar experience. Hope your bird made it. Ours is hanging in there. I can’t imagine it would be alive a week later if there wasn’t a mom out there feeding it when we can’t see her.

    Sharon, I hope the baby bird makes it, too. I might call a wildlife rescue this weekend.

    From My Heart to Yours,

  14. Oh my goodness, Janis — I am afraid to ask what has happened to the sweet baby bird! The boys and I had a similar experience last week when we discovered a baby mourning dove in the yard. He could hop about but not fly. We didn’t see a nest anywhere, so we left him alone after checking on him a bunch of times. Finally when we returned once more he was gone — hopefully he made it to a safe place and was not eaten by the neighborhood hawk (I reassured the boys the the hawk surely didn’t snatch him up!).

    Anway, your point is so well-made about God caring and loving us — yes I remember that passage well from the Bible!

  15. I love this. We tried this before – but failed – next time we will try your method. – Your scripture choice and your story are really pertinent to my life – it is faith in knowing He loves me like you describe.

    I’m stopping by from Sanctified Together – and how you say you guys were less prepared for journey mis-haps made me laugh. Not that we’re or you were careless – but I marvel at how God watches our steps and opens doors and makes sure we’re O.K. when we live thrown in His arms!

  16. Janis – I’m stopping by after reading your article in Sanctified Together. It is a beautiful story of submission, God’s provision, and His amazing grace.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with others. I know many will be blessed by reading and it should cause all of us wives to remember God’s commandment to be submissive to our husbands.
