About my blog
Hi there, my name is Olivia. I’m a girl who has a deep love for reading, studying, pondering, and writing about theology and how my faith affects the way I view things in culture. This blog is where I write down all those random ramblings of my thoughts, although I do try to organize them a bit so that they’re a little less rambling 😉 My hope is that God would work through that which he inspires me to write, so that it would encourage and challenge my fellow young brothers and sisters in Christ.
The story behind the name
The reason I first picked the title “The Loved Sparrow” was simple. It sounded nice and there was a nice verse to go along with it too. Over time though, this name has taken on a greater meaning to me. Luke 12:6-7 says, “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows”. God knows and cares about even the sparrows, a tiny part of his creation. He cares even more for we, people, whom he created in his image. Just as he sustains the lives of those wee little birds, he is orchestrating every event of our lives for his glory and our good. Anxiety and stress are some of my biggest struggles, but such scriptures as these remind me that God never takes a day off; every second of my life he is there, watching over me, guiding me, and strengthening me.
