LOOK AT THE BIRDS IN THE SKY


Here we are again with all our worries and anxieties.


If we worry the whole day, can it add anything to


the length and quality of our lives? We are all worried


about the humdrums of life from dawn till sunset till


midnight. As a normal human being, worry just


sometimes wear us down. But could we reflect about


trusting in Divine Providence?




"Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap or


gather in the barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them."


See how they fly in the air; I have never seen creatures


that swoop and glide with utmost grace and beauty than


those birds. They chirp as if there's always the next morning


after the lovely dawn arise.




"Think of the flowers growing in the fields; they have never to


work or spin; yet I assure you that not even Solomon in all his


royal robes was clothed like one of this." The beauty of the flowers


have fascinated the world (tulips, roses, lilies, chrysnathemums)


through the ages.




Jesus assured us in Matt: 16: 28-29 how even the wild flowers growing in the


fields were taken cared of. How much more with man who


was given mastery over all other creatures?




Do not worry, seek the Kingdom of God first and everything


will be added unto you. We just have to experience the truth,


not to wobble about it since it is seen with the eyes of faith


and with an unwavering heart. How could we relate these things with


our everyday life?




In the midst of crises, difficulties and disasters, we will see


unity and love everywhere. The fruits of the Kingdom


is among us. From the nations who respond promptly to aid


one another to the simple person who carries a bloodied friend,


to the person who feed the hungry in stricken areas and to


the groups who clothe those who are in great need.




Trust in God! He will never forsake or abandon you; His


promises never fail. Life may not be a bed of roses, but


God promised that after the rain, the sun will shine again...
