Hi there! My name is Sarah and I am a Mama, Wife, Author, incessant Chatterer, Worship your heart out, Coffee drinking, Daughter of God! I am so excited to have created a platform where I am free to be me, flaws and all as I walk this wonderful journey called life, with the Heavenly Father right by my side.
Let me get this out of the way early. I had absolutely no intention of starting this blog. I'm an author of fiction books, but when I surrendered my entire career over to the Lord, he let me know where He wanted me to go, and even gave me the name of this ministry. When you let go and let God, crazy, awesome things can happen! And Little Sparrow Loved was born.
One thing that really spoke to me when the Lord prompted me to start this little blog, was the symbol of the Sparrow in Mathew. And I understood right away why He had whispered this ministry name to me.
Mathew 29-31 "29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."
The reason this scripture touched my heart was that God continued to draw me to it! I was at a point in my life where I had pulled back from chasing people, was up in the air about where my career was going, some days feeling as if I was failing as a parent, and feeling completely flipped upside down because God was setting me on a new path. I was letting go of the old and walking into the new. If I'm honest it was a little scary and although I knew God was with me, there was also a loneliness.
But isn't God great! Through it all, He was pruning me back and I am now beginning to grow new fruit. And, every time I feel sad, He reminds me of the sparrow yet again. I figured I really needed to look into that and embrace what He was saying to me. And as I read the above scripture more and more, I realised that He was trying to speak to so many people, and letting them know that they are not alone, they are not insignificant, and He is watching, seeing and cheering you on every step of the way!
Though the sparrow is small, it has strength, it is perfectly made, it is gentle, beautiful, it nests, and provides, feeds and nurtures, and best of all, God sees it and it's purpose as much as anything else! So much so, He even used these beautiful little creatures in his teachings.
Yes, I fell in love with with the sparrow, and I knew in my heart I needed to start writing, to start letting others out there know that we have a God that sees us, loves us, never leaves us and wants you to know that you are His!
I'm not going to tell you this journey with me is going to be soft bunnies and rainbows, I write deeply about the things that trouble me whether it be my christian walk, motherhood, marriage, and personal spiritual growth, but I promise you will identify with those daily struggles.
One thing I am certain on, is that I love God wholeheartedly and He loves me! My aim in this life is simple... To spread the message of Jesus Christ and to encourage, love and support those that are also on journeys. And of course bring others into the Kingdom of God. I want to be the salt & the light for Him! So who is with me???
