The Hallmark of Christian Belief#
Blessed are those whose strength is in You, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Weeping, they make it a place of springs. (Psalm 84:5-6a)
Nothing is impossible for God. I was reminded of His truth yet again, today.
l saw this beautiful yellow flower, delicate and young, growing from a tiny crack in the pavement.
Amazingly this infant plant managed to flourish despite the heated or harsh surrounding environment. It bloomed gloriously.
Cement paving is extremely hot in summer, even for bare feet, let alone for such a delicate flower peeking up through the cracks.
The brilliance of its yellow petals splashed God's glory of color, showcasing His perpetual handiwork.
Difficult circumstances within our life are opportunities to display His glory through us, even when it seems otherwise.
It is by faith we live and not by sight, the hallmark of a Christian's belief.
Circumstances can confront us to look to a hope beyond ourselves, to He who is the only One true hope in this world ... Christ Jesus, the hope of glory.
Life stretches us and our faith likewise. Thus we grow to full maturity in Christ likeness, not lacking any good thing.
Where ever they are, mature Christians become diffusers (even in the valley of weeping) to the beautiful perfumed fragrance of Him. ~ #Alicia Lily Nicholls (with SoulSupply edits.)
