Why the Birds Sing when it Rains

After a couple days of rain, I watched a robin in its happy moment feeding on worm after worm. It got me thinking~ I often hear the birds sing more when it is raining. Now to us in our lives when it "rains" in our lives we grumble, stress out and worry if we can handle it all.

The birds know that with rain, worms come from the ground! A sure blessing for them. So I thought "Are they singing their praises to the Lord for the blessing they are about to receive?" What a concept!

Matthew 6:26
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?

The birds sing praises to God because they are thanking him for providing for them. So when it rains in your life you can know that God will provide all you need to get through what ever it is you need. You will find strength in the worms God gives you after the rain, it will surely feed your soul for sure. So remember to praise God during the storm in your life because you know God brings good out of even the worst of circumstances.

Blessings, Angie


  1. I love that thought - so lovely! I will have to remember that at 4 in the morning when the birds outside my window wake me up. ;)

  2. Great reminder Angie! Thanks for the encouragement. We could learn a lot from the birds...

  3. We just need to keep on lifting our heads and singing praises right through the storm.
