#122 Sparrows

From Good Friday to Easter Sunday and from one Cory Asbury song to another. This time, Sparrows.

I heard this one in the afternoon of Good Friday and it made me think about the fact that the reason we can hope in God and his provision in our lives is because of Easter.

He did what needed to be done to take all our sins away on Good Friday.

He did what needed to be done to give us life forever on Easter Sunday.

In those two things more than anything else, we can say to God along with Asbury, “Yeah, you take good care of me.”

Everything else he provides to us in life – and he does provide – is a bonus.

If you’re thinking ‘why sparrows?’, you’ll find the answer here.

No one deserves anything, and yet he takes good care of us.

The sparrows remind us of his care.

Yours in reflecting on sparrows,

Alison

Lyrics Source: Musixmatch

The sparrow’s not worried about tomorrow
Or the troubles to come
The lily’s not thinking about the seasons
The drought or the flood
The tree that’s planted by the water
Isn’t phased by the fire
So why should I be?’

Cause you take good care of me
You take good care of me
You know what I need before I even ask a thing
And you hold me in your hands
With a kindness that never ends
I’m carried in your love, no matter what the future brings
Yeah, you take good care of me

The sun’s not worried about the winter
‘Cause soon it will pass
The light’s not thinking about the darkness
Or the shadow it cast
A heart that’s planted in forgiveness
Doesn’t dwell in the past
So why should I be?’

Cause you take good care of me
You take good care of me
You know what I need before I even ask a thing
And you hold me in your hands
With a kindness that never ends
I’m carried in your love, no matter what the future brings
Yeah, you take good care of me

I know there must be more
But I can’t get past your kindness
I know there’s got to be more
But I can’t get past your goodness
I know there must be more
But I can’t get past your kindness
I know there’s got to be more
But I can’t get past your goodness

You take good care of me
You take good care of me
You know what I need before I even ask a thing
You hold me in your hands
With a kindness that never ends
I’m carried in your love, no matter what the future brings
Oh, you take good care of me
