Stop and Enjoy My Love

As I walked out of the house this morning, I noticed a tiny, yellow flower growing out of the crack in our driveway. I have to admit that my first thought went something like this: “How in the world did it sprout up in the middle of my concrete driveway? It’s gotta be a weed – where’s my weed killer? Just what I need – another thing to take care of when I get home tonight!”

And, then something happened. This soft, loving thought came to my mind “stop for a just a minute and enjoy my love present to you. I know that you love flowers, especially yellow ones. And, in that flower I want you to see that I can do anything, no matter what the circumstance, what the condition – concrete or fertile soil.”

I don’t know how you would respond, but I was embarrassed and humbled. I was embarrassed that the first thoughts that I had about that tiny flower were of irritation and inconvenience. And, I was humbled because the God of this universe took the time to reveal His love for me to me. And, you know what? He showed me His love for me in spite of my response to His loving gesture!

What in the world do you do with that kind of love?
You accept it for yourself and then pass it along!
