I love the newness of a sunflower. They struggle so hard to grow strong and tall. They patiently wait to bloom until they are strong enough to hold the weight of their glory. They never give up. Are you patient enough to wait for Heaven? It is coming soon so grow strong. “Patience”
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
We all would love to walk around our homes with a tiara or a crown on. Come on. Admit it. My kid always says “You’re not the boss of me!” and I have to laugh a little at the absurdity of that. I am the boss of him, but ultimately God is the Boss of him… AND the Boss of me! I have to wake up every morning to beg God to dethrone me. If left up to my own way, I would gladly have the world revolve around me. We all would. All we know is what we know, nothing more, nothing less. Imagine when Jesus comes home to take his rightful place, there will be no more democracy. No more opinion about what you think should be and not be. No more debates about what side you are going to vote for. Do you know what a true monarchy is? Realistically and honestly you have to admit that you don’t. It is totally foreign to you. Well, guess what? God is in charge even now so stop trying to pretend you have any say in it. Have you read Job lately? It will rock you to the core. What sad little crowns we think we wear. Job is my hero!
“The Sad Crown”
“He has stripped from me my glory and taken the crown from my head.”
