TITLE: A Little Birdie Told Me!

Splayed out on my bed, I whimpered out to Him; longing for His Presence. I was in the throes of clinical depression and had never felt so alone. Then out of the empty darkness, God comforted me in a very audible way.
In a numbed state of being I managed to complete daily responsibilities. My body felt like lead weight and my mind fogged over as if it were intoxicated. Exhaustion overwhelmed my soul, yet I would awaken around 3:00 every morning. This particular night, the numbness seemed too much to bear alone. I knew God was with me, but I longed for tangible interaction with Him; I cried out to my Jesus.
From within the mystical darkness of early morning, I heard the musical sound of a bird outside my window. It wasn’t just any bird song, but an unusual melody that I did not normally hear during the day. Intuitively, I knew that this was the voice of God serenading me in love. It was like the little bird was telling me that God heard me and remind me that He is right here with me. I was comforted and finally slept.
That little bird appeared during the night for the next few months, as I recovered from the illness. I called him my Jesus Bird as that was who he represented to my lifeless soul. Over the years, that same bird song has appeared at night through numerous seasons of darkness in my life.
I do not know what kind of bird it is that has the nocturnal song, and that is not important to me. The Bible reports that God has His eye on the sparrow, and I personally know that His voice also comes through a sparrow, or whatever type of bird that is available. Thank you Jesus for that little bird who tells me You love me.
