Driving down the road I felt that burden every momma feels at times … worry for her child.

The situation was not one of life or death, but, my momma heart was heavy with concern for my child.

After leaving my child, I prayed a brief prayer, and flipped on the radio. The DJ introduced the next song as the perfect song for such a beautiful, warm spring day. Then I heard the first words:

“Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright”

Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMZGOnFer4k) had me captivated for it’s entire four plus minutes. The longer I listened, the louder I heard the words of Jesus as he spoke his Sermon on the Mount.

“I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:25-26

When the song was over, I was empowered by the truth that Mr. Marley’s words reminded me of. I felt as though I had been comforted by Biblical truth, with an Islands flair.

All of my children are so loved and valued by their mom, but they are even more valuable to Christ. To Him, all of my children, all of HIS children are more valuable to Him than any other of His creations, and he constantly reminds us to not worry.

As you go about this day, listen for the …

“three little birds,
singin’ sweet songs
of melodies pure and true,
saying’, (“This is my message to you”)
singing’ “Don’t worry ’bout a thing,
’cause every little thing gonna be alright.”

Things might not turn out the way I want, but God loves my child more, and that does a momma heart good, ’cause every little thing gonna be alright.
