The word for today

 Psalm 69:7

For I have endured insults because of you, and shame has covered my face.

Psalm 68:9

You, God, showered abundant rain; you revived your inheritance when it languished.

Psalm 64:7

But God will shoot them with arrows; suddenly, they will be wounded.

Luke 8:17

For nothing is concealed that won’t be revealed, and nothing hidden that won’t be made known and brought to light.

Isaiah 9:2

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; a light has dawned on those living in the land of darkness.

Why should I feel discouraged

Civilla D. Martin (1905)

Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely,
And long for heav’n and home;
When Jesus is my portion?
My constant Friend is he;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free;
For his eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me.

“Let not your heart be troubled,”
His tender word I hear,
And resting on his goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path he leadeth,
But one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free;
For his eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me.
