God Feeds the Birds & Wild Animals

God Feeds the Birds & Wild Animals

Hi, my name is Rocky and I am a squirrel, but I am not any ordinary squirrel, I am a “blessed” squirrel! I asked my adopted mom, Ms. Sharon to write a letter for me because I wanted everyone to know how God loves me too! I know because being squirrel is not always easy; much of my day is about “food” meaning finding food, eating food and burying food. Also, many times I am having to fight other animals especially my squirrel relatives who are always trying to take my food. Okay, if I am honest sometimes I am taking theirs too! Well, this is where God comes in for me as He sent me Ms. Sharon and Mr. Woody too (her husband) who feeds me and many of my friends like Rudy the singing cardinal, Ralph the grumpy blue jay and other invading squirrels (yes, they are even teaching me to share more and I try…it’s so hard!). I know sometimes I look just plain greedy and not so appreciative of all that God gives me to eat each day. But it’s a squirrel’s natural instinct to think that there will not be enough food or it will run out so you just keep on eating. I admit that even when I save some I am still looking for more to eat; never satisfied. One day when I was been super greedy; Ms. Sharon, laughing, said “boy, you squirrels sure do take on similar characteristics of us humans as we always want more and never seem to have enough; always worrying about our next meal. But, then she looked a little sad and spoke as if she was talking to herself. She said “Lately, it seems we humans seem to be worrying about everything now days just a little too much…and trusting in God a little less”. Well, as a squirrel that was too deep for me to really understand, so I went back to my daily task of “eating”. But I did hear her say “Rocky, you and I are so blessed as your belly is always fed and so is mine!” And while I was eating my favorite peanut crackers, rubbing my full belly; smiling, I thought “she is right!!!”

God doesn’t want us to worry so much as He wants us to trust Him more. He also wants us to be thankful in our times of fullness; He wants us to share with others who have less even if we help feed other people or are feeding animals like a special squirrel name “Rocky” who is very blessed indeed. We all are so blessed!

Abba Father, thank you for nature, for speaking through your beautiful wild life and animals like “Rocky” that to teach us so many things about trusting your faithfulness to care for all that you have created on this earth.

Today I will put my worries and cares aside!
