Welcome!

Welcome to “Look at the Birds!”

This is only the beginning of this blog, but I’m so hopeful and expectant for God to speak and to move through the words on these pages…

He writes a BEAUTIFUL story, and I’m so excited to see what He’s got in store.

The name behind this site is based on my favorite verse, one that’s been reappearing in my life over and over lately: Matthew 6:26.

The MSG version says,

“Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds”

later on in verses 30-33, it says,

““If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.”

I love this chapter and both of these verses SO much, because they illustrate the state of freedom and peace that we get to walk in as Christ-followers. We get to be careless! We get to be free and unfettered!! Because God is in control and He is GOOD and we can TRUST Him!

My goal for this blog is not to be perfect, not to tell you how to live your life, but to listen, to grow, and to learn together, and to allow God to speak through me in any and every way that He wants.

I pray that Holy Spirit moves in these words and in your hearts as you read,

I pray that you encounter His presence and experience pure love as you’ve never known before,

I pray that you find community and a place to feel safe,

and I pray that we become closer to Jesus together.

There are no heights nor depths to his love… He is so multi-faceted, so complex, yet He wants nothing more than our hearts.

So, here’s to a new adventure and a journey together! Welcome!

 

You are SO loved,

Maggie
