“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers — most of which are never even seen — don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?” Matthew 6:30 MSG
“You know well enough how the wind blows this way and that. You hear it rustling through the trees, but you have no idea where it comes from or where it’s headed next. That’s the way it is with everyone ‘born from above’ by the wind of God, the Spirit of God.” John 3:8
I’m tired of striving, how about you? It’s exhausting. Trying to be and do it all? We weren’t made that way. We were made in the image of One who says we are already beautiful, already loved, already valued. Like wildflowers.
They don’t have to work hard to be beautiful. They don’t have to struggle to fulfill their purpose. Their beauty is in the “being”- moving with the rhythms of the wind as it dances through their petals.
This blog is an invitation to stop striving, to rest, to lean into the beauty of who you were made to be, to join in this dance with the wind of the Spirit as it blows all around us.
Welcome, dear wildflowers.
