for a faith that blooms

Word: “Think about how the wild flowers grow. They don’t work hard to get all dressed up. And yet, I tell you,  not even King Solomon in all his royal apparel was ever dressed as fine as one of them. Now if that’s the way God takes care of what grows wild in the fields, even though they’re here only for a little while, don’t you know he’ll take exceedingly good care of you! So tell me, where is your faith in him?” (Luke 12:27-28)
Wonder: If you were to call up your digital notepad right now and start typing everything that just came to your mind that you would call a true blessing from God that is yours, what sort of list would result? Find out. Then, after thanking him for them, find your faith growing and stretching. Bloom.

  1. Beautiful flowers such as the one pictured here are perfect in their design. If you look carefully, you can see 5 tiny points on each pedal displaying symmetry, or balance. Just like the flower, balance is part of what we all desire in our lives, but often fall short of accomplishing. We keep our houses clean and spotless, but our children are stressed. We do it all at work, and fall apart at home. We attend every organization meeting and can’t make it to church. We are not as perfect as God’s flora. Notice even the leaves on a branch and how they display balance. Like Gods plants, we were once made perfect, before the downfall of man. The Great Designer came up with a way to put us back into balance with the original plan. He sent Jesus to live among man and die for our sins so we could be made perfect God left the Holy Spirit to guide our ways. We are blessed by God, the Son, and the Holy Spirit to some day have again, the perfect balance of the yellow flower.

  2. We may not realize it but, we as humans are very similar to this flower. A PERFECT FLOWER (scientific reference) is pictured; we can look at this flower in many ways.
    First, take a look at the center of the flower, this could be you. Next, is the style/stigma these represent our family and close friends. Then there are the petals, these could be our neighbors, coworkers, business associates, other families at church, the list is endless. But, what we do not see in this picture is the Sepal (the green portion under the bloom) that protects the flower as a ‘bud’; but is still with the flower even once it has bloomed. This definitely represents GOD, who is always with us no matter what happens in our life.
    This flower appears to have everything in perfect order and we see a perfect flower, until we compare it another flower on the same plant, then all the imperfections come into focus. If we allow GOD to take charge of our life, everything will fall into order, our imperfections will not be obvious and we will become the PERFECT FLOWER that GOD created.
