This sunflower voluntarily came up on its own. No one planted the seed. One day this spring it poked itself up through the dirt and began its climb.
Reminds me of God.
Where did this sunflower come from? No beginning. Just appeared!
I have to walk past this giant marker as I come and go from home. It stands as a protector, reminding everyone, this house is watched over by a giant brilliant sunflower!
Sort of comforts me- you know?
I crane my neck to look up into its face, sun blinding my eyes. No one has seen God.
What I see when my eyes focus is a little family of bees crawling around on the face of the giant sunflower.
“Seek me and I will let you find me,” God says.
A relationship with the Almighty. It isn’t complicated. He is closer than we think. HE stands watch over us, inviting, beckoning,
I want to be a bee- living my life seeking God’s face, taking my nourishment from Him.
Sweet as honey.
Seek God's face and may His glory cause you to ~
