    Keep Your Eyes On The Sparrow


    By Jacqueline Amos




    Keep your eyes on the sparrow.
    The beginning of the end has come,
    And the sparrow has flapped his wings to the sun,
    Don’t look back ,if you do you will be lost in the wind.



    Keep your eyes on the sparrow,
    and the wind shall follow,
    Don’t look back you will loose your tomorrow.
    The sounds of the eagle and the roaring of the wind
    Grasped to your future, The sun will follow.
    Hold on there is no light in the dark,
    What you see before you will be your start.



    Keep your eyes on the sparrow, don’t look back
    Your future stands before you, when you close your eyes
    You will loose what you got.
    There is need for validation, for the future and the past
    Hold on tomorrow ,the past is just what it is,
    Keep your eyes on t he sparrow.


    It fears nothing of the earth, it will be your celebration
    So take a deep breath, The sparrow is the sanctuary
    Of your hope chest upon this earth.




    As the wings separate,
    and the mind generate ,
    and the heart continues to beat.
    The spirit rises to a higher level of suspense.
    The sparrow flaps his wings.
    As it sings the songs,
    of the future ,and what your life should be.
    As the wings spread as the butterflies weeps,
    And the center of mans world release.
    The sparrow flaps his wings.



    Keep your eyes on the sparrow,
    It will be your destiny, As then as now
    Don’t close your eyes.
    Your world is turning. Don’t blink an eye,
    Keep your eyes on the sparrow.
    It will bring you to another level of understanding,
    Who is the sparrow ?
    One of God’s links ,
    Keep Your Eyes On The Sparrow, Don’t blink.

    "God's eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches me."
    Truly, it will bring you to another level of understanding.
    Keep writin' with that spiritual understanding...

    Blessings my sister in spirit it is not the church that make the person ,but the church within he lives, its not the flock of the congragation but the humanity which one gives. The ministry is the enlightment of the almighty pen. You the minister of Gods words make you the sheep that God represents. Blessings to all
