consider this...

In the spring, in Texas, the wildflowers are amazing! There are so many colors, sizes and varieties. They cover the hillsides and highways as you travel down the road. And then, in a few weeks... they're gone. But while they are blooming, people come from miles away with cameras to capture their beauty. It's another beautiful picture of how God cares for us.

When He asks us to consider the beauty of these wildflowers, which are 'here today and gone tomorrow', He goes on to tell us how much more He will care for us...

He has given us a million ways to show us us that He loves us. By creating every. single. different style and color of flowers that just grow wildly, He is giving one more example of that love, telling us that if He cares enough to create all of those flowers so carefully and differently... how much more He cares for us!

I'm so thankful that He has chosen not only to tell us, but to show us, over and over again how much we are loved by Him. I never get tired of hearing it.


"Has anyone by fussing before the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? If fussing can't even do that, why fuss at all? Walk into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They don't fuss with their appearance—but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them. If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, most of them never even seen, don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?Luke 12:24-26

I think one of the many great gifts we receive from God, is the ability to know how much He loves us! Some people just don't get it. Others don't feel it. What a shame! We're all beautiful flowers in God's eyes!

One of my favorite songs is David Crowder's "Oh, how He loves us.." It just tells it like it is and I love to sing it loudly in praise to my King!

Don't know that I've ever considered it that way. Next time I start fussing about my hair, I am definitly going to remember this post and that scripture! Great post!
