Have you ever looked over and noticed a flower coming up where you least expected it? Maybe in a crevice in the side of a mountain or in a tiny little crack in the pavement. Did it bother you or inspire you? Because those little blossoms are inspiration to me.
Think about it.
They're resilient enough to dig their roots down deep where they can get the nutrients they need, yet flexible enough to slip through the tiniest sliver of a hard spot and grow towards the sunshine and fresh air.
Yes. I want to be like a flower in the cracks.
Because isn't that sort of our situation right now? Caught between a rock and a hard place at every turn. It seems no matter what choice we make, we'll offend someone or they'll offend us. Instead, let's dig our roots down deep into the Word of God, and then wiggle our way up between the mountains of bad situations and let our blossoms look toward God, our son, the one who gives us all we need, even if it's only a sliver of a crack.
"And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you?" -- Matthew 6:27-30
What do you think? Are you as strong as a flower?
