“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before the Lord. Why, even the hairs on your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows…”
- Luke 12: 6-7

A sparrow is the most common bird on earth. There is nothing wildly special about them… they are not known for their brilliant coloring or beautiful sounds, but they are known, they are recognized.

As a human, we are common. We all have the same problems, situations, fears, needs… BUT, God sees those things. He sees them intimately and intricately and knows.

“El Roi” is Hebrew for “The God Who Sees Me”; it was a name that Hagar recognized God by during her time of struggle and pain. It is a name that I celebrate of the Lord daily.

That is the story of The Beloved Sparrow; although we are common, merely human, Christ calls us His beloved, calls us His bride, calls us His period. This space is a means of chronicling the journey of a woman, chosen and beloved, although sometimes she feels as common as a sparrow.
