THE LIGHT



This little plant lives on the window sill in our bedroom these days. I am "plant sitting" while my daughter is in France. I noticed the other day that it was growing toward the sunlight and thought what a wise little plant it is. It is drawn by the sun and reaches out to be bathed in its life-giving light. When I turn it the other way, it simply begins to grow toward the light once again.

It's persistence in seeking the light is a vivid reminder that I too must follow the one true Light. I want to be found leaning into Him.

"AGAIN THEREFORE JESUS SPOKE TO THEM, SAYING, "I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD; HE WHO FOLLOWS ME SHALL NOT WALK IN THE DARKNESS, BUT SHALL HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE."
John 8:12

Blessings,

So fun that you would post about this today, Linda.

I was just thinking the exact same thing a couple days ago as I walked the dog in the morning.

All the wildflowers were craning their "necks" toward the sun, and I thought the very same words you posted. Thank you for such an inspiring post, dear Linda.

AMEN... and the plant is such a great illustration. I am reminded of these words... "Leaning on Jesus, Leaning on Jesus, Safe and secure from all life's harm". I think that's the way the song went.

I love your wide window sills. Perfect for plant sitting.

Me again, I'm glad your dad is better... I will continue to keep him (and you) in my prayers.

Good news about Dad!

God created plants to be so wise - if we will learn the lesson!

I love this illustration and how God teaches us spiritual truth through everyday things.
