What a beautiful day today! First, my walk in the preserve, then fellowship with my church family.
On my journey in the preserve, God showed me a beautiful red flower. Only problem with this flower was, it was smack-dab in the middle of a bunch of bushes, thorns, rubbish in the prairie. God showed me that in order get a hold of that flower, one would have to:
a.) endure the pain of being stuck by thorn bushes
b.) dodge a few snakes
c.) maybe a few bee stings
d.) walk a long distance, and
e.) even encounter a coyote or some wild animals.
God showed me the value of that beautiful flower today! He told me clearly, "that in order for someone to be worthy of such inner/outer beauty they would have to endure pain, stings from others, walking a distance, and dealing with snakes etc. The value of His beauty doesn't come easy. Are you worthy of such beauty?
if you endured pain, stings from others, walking a long lonely journey, then you are probably more beautiful than you think!
Be blessed! xoxo
