There is a spot I love to visit in the middle of the weekend, if I have a bit of time. I bring a beverage, read on my phone, and listen to the music from the worship service that’s happening.
Right now, there is a medley of Turn you Eyes Upon Jesus, Jesus is the Answer, Jesus, How I Trust Him, His Eye is On the Sparrow. Music curated to remind us of the truth that God has not forgotten us in troubled times, that trusting him will actually bring us greater peace than trying to cling to control.
I heard it last night and I’m back for more.
His Eye is On the Sparrow, and the verses it’s tied to, have been important to me in recent years. Tragedy does not happen behind God’s back. He sees, indeed, he comes near to whisper, Trust Me, I will make even this worth it.
