Why should I feel discouraged? Why should the shadows come? Why should my heart feel lonely and long for heaven and home?
Jesus is my portion,
a constant friend is he,
his eye is on the sparrow and he watches over me.
They may be the words of a beautiful song, but they are true. There are times in life when we feel discouraged, when we can’t seem to lift ourselves up.
That’s the time to look higher than yourself.
You may feel lonely today – you have a friend in Jesus.
You may feel discouraged today– God is for you.
You may feel like nobody cares – Jesus couldn’t care more.
If he watches every sparrow and takes care of them, how much more does he watch over you?
Today, take your eyes off your circumstances, and turn them to Jesus. You’ll be glad you did.
A daily devotion for a better way of living.
