It's good to see you again today!
This time of year, I start thinking about planting, everything from vegetables to flowers. One of my favorites is sunflowers. I adore sunflowers! They are so bright and cheery! Though I never have very good luck with them, I try again each year, hoping and believing. Today, I began thinking about the sunflowers and their requirements. One of the most essential requirements is the sun.
Now, many of you that have grown sunflowers before, know of a particularly unique characteristic these wonderful creations possess. They "follow" the sun. They literally "turn their face" toward the sun and follow it as it make its way across the sky each day. They are "absorbing" all of its nourishing rays. There is a lesson here!
We, like sunflowers, must turn our face toward the "Son" and follow Him each day to be able to absorb all of His nourishing rays. When we do, we will become "bright and cheery" just like those wonderful creations - sunflowers!
"Dear Jesus, Help me turn my face toward You today. I want to absorb those marvelous Rays of Nourishment for my soul. I want to shine as bright as the sunflowers! Thanks for creating them to remind me of Your love!"
