March 20th is declared as the “WORLD SPARROW’S DAYS”, hence this article…
Sparrows are loosely monogamous.
Both the female and the male take care of the young ones,
though the female does most of the brooding
JESUS too expects us to be monogamous,
loyal and faithful to HIM as HE is to us..
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Mathew 6:24 KJV)
They can swim to escape from predators,
although they are not considered to be water birds.
You maybe wondering how to get out of a tough situation,
Remember that we too have an escape route from predators,
and that JESUS, the LIVING WATER…
GOD has designed you to do what others can’t do…
If a sparrow can do what a water bird can,
we too can…
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13)
The difference between a male and a female sparrow
is that the former has a reddish back and a black bib,
whereas the female has brown back with eye stripe.
Do we remember how JESUS was broken for us on the cross?
How HIS back turned BLOODY RED so that we maybe healed?
Do we really deserve to be loved so?
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5)
The nest building is initiated by an unmated male,
who begins the construction while displaying it to the females.
The females do assist in nest building, but are less active than the male.
JESUS is busy building a mansion from gold and silver,
to take back the church, HIS BRIDE for HIS wedding…
Are we preparing for our wedding with HIM
as HE is busy preparing for the bride?
And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. (Revelation 21:18)
If a sparrow can exhibit the qualities of its Creator,
how much more will our Creator expects of us whom HE has created in HIS own image?
Happy Sparrow’s day….
Yours in YESHUA,

* broken wings*
with broken wings you gentally held me up and prayed to GOD that i would soon fly again. for who can stop the hands of GOD and who can stop the prayers of his truely devoted son.
with my wings spread out i stood up at the edge of Gods greatest mountain. face bruised ,two bloody wings fightin to stay alive. when my angel apeared and helped me dry my eyes, to see i had a true friend indeed. a brother sent to me by GOD! i heard softly as he prayed as i prepared to push off and fly i cried out to GOD as he reached and touched the hand of my brother . like two sparrows we where both seeking GODS presance . slowly i let go as GOD moved the motion of the wind and still i heard his soft prayers.
my wings pushed forward and again i was able to fly up above the mountain that had me captive i was flying and below i saw my brother still praying for he seen more in me than i have been able to see in a longtime. not just a sparrow seeking help .but a diamond in the ruff. some seen just a clogg of dirt and rocks. but my sweet brother he seen the shiny rays of light all around me for this world covered me with sin yet my brother mithra saw what was within.
I LOVE YOU BROTHER
YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST
