When arriving home from work yesterday, I noticed something on the walkway in front of my door. At first I wasn't sure what it was, it was pinkish in color and just seemed to be lumped in a pile right there on the ground.

As I moved closer, I could see the little feet, the few feathers and what seemed to be the facial features of a tiny little bird. It must have fallen out of the ginormous tree that is in our front yard.

 After coming in the house, I thought about that little bird. The long fall from that tree must have been pretty scary for such a little fella, and where was the mother? I did not see any sign of her. How sad that this creation of God had to be all alone in its final moments.

But was it all alone?

"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." MATTHEW 10:29-31

According to Matthew, God is aware of it all. He is concerned even with the birds, not one falls to the ground without Him knowing about it. If God cares for the birds, how much more does He care for you and me?

There are days that we may feel like we have fallen out of tree. We may feel so discouraged that we just want to lay on the ground and die. It may even seem like it is you against the world, and the as the world passes by, nobody seems to care about you. But God does. He loves us and He knows when we are hurting, or in trouble, or sad, or feeling all alone. He also knows about the times that we are happy, in good health and everything is going great. He knows the good and the bad that happens to us. In fact, He knows what kind of a day we are going to have before we even know.

There is comfort in knowing that there is Someone Who cares about us so much that not one detail of our lives go unnoticed. Today on THANKFUL THURSDAY, I am so grateful that in the midst of it all...GOD KNOWS!
