When you look at the homeless, the first thought that comes to mind is that they have been forgotten. Yes forgotten, by friends, family, and even government. The sight of these individuals shouldn’t be a heart-hardening experience; but a heart-breaking one.
So yesterday while driving by, I saw a homeless man lying under the overpass with a life that just seems to be fading away. Immediately my heart ached with pain—as it always does when I see the homeless—then I whispered a prayer for him understanding that God knows about his plight.
The Bible says that a sparrow doesn’t fall to the ground without God’s knowledge and presence. I want you to know that God is aware of your struggles. He knows where you are and what you are going through. Your situation may look grim; but He is very much present, and He is going to see you through because He has the power to do it. He feeds the birds, He clothes the lilies, and He will take care of you because you are worth more than many sparrows.
Matthew 10:29 "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father."
