Grace Day

Today's Text: Luke 12:6-7

Take this day as an opportunity to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.

“Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight. Indeed, the hairs of your head are all counted. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
—Luke 12:6-7

    “Stop fearing. You surpass in importance many little sparrows.” (Wuest version) we are not only worth more – but we are important to God….I love reading the Wuest version – it is a greek translation of the new testament….always opens the eyes of my understanding when i see how it translates….worth has value – but importance carries more than just value…you can be a valuable employee – worth a lot, but not be important…but important people carry both value and status…

    Love this verse so much! Sometimes I put myself down about my worth and not feeling beautiful…just have to remember God’s truths. Also update from yesterday, we tried to get a conversation going with our friend’s roommate yesterday to share the Gospel, but we haven’t shared it yet…and unfortunately the witnessing assignment is due today. :/ just not sure what God wants me to do/who He wants me to share it with. If you could please pray that this would work out somehow, I’d really appreciate it. That it would also come from the heart, not just for the sake of a grade.

      Ended up talking with our friend’s roommate today! It went well, got to know her better and asked about her relationship with God…but she said she didn’t want to talk about it. But I’m glad we had the conversation, definitely got to learn more about her. Gonna pray for her and hope we get to know her more…and hopefully have more faith related conversations (with her and other people too!)

        Hang in there Sarah! When we are intentionally looking for opportunities we will find them! When we are not thinking about sharing the gospel it never happens….I am also challenged to live intentionally!

  • HE knows the number of my hairs on my head! That has always given me hope and encouragement. And just like the rest of you this morning, it’s exactly what I needed to hear, again! My dear sisters have a wonderful day today and thank you so much for all your prayers and encouragement.

  • Just what I longed for this morning…to be wrapped in my Father’s love.

    I was ‘invisible’ in my life for a season. Those were dark days. But never once was I forgotten by my heavenly Father. I’m ever grateful for His constant care and presence.

  • I’ve been feeling so alone lately. I am NOT alone. If he cares for the birds His love is boundless for me!

    “consider the birds” ❤️ I remind myself of these three words often. What love and care HE has lavished on us.

  • I am not forgotten. I’m ohana.
