Life is filled with challenges. Sometimes these cripple, but they don’t have to.
Civilla Martin knew this. She and her husband, Walter, visited a couple, the Doolittle’s, who expressed hope and happiness in spite of their daily stress.
Walter, asked, “How come you’re still smiling?”
Their answer inspired Civilla to write this hymn, “His Eye is on the Sparrow.”
Afflictions and challenges can move us to accomplishment if we allow. God is able to use even the hard times if we’ll cooperate.
Let the background story and the lyrics of this hymn inspire your day. (http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/h/i/hiseyeis.htm)
