Beautiful Weed

Consider the dandelion, for most adults they are weeds that show up everywhere. We see them as a hindrance, we see no use for their existence. Then After they have turned, we see them blowing around leaving empty stems and so quickly the cycle starts again. What an annoyance!

Matthew 18:3
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

What do children see when they look at a field of dandelions?
FLOWERS
GIFTS
WISHES
HOPES
What do they do with them? They
MAKE-BELIEVE
They ADORN their heads with CROWNS. They wave them in the air and spin around with JOY!
They See the beauty of the Dandelion from Start to Finish.

The Gifts we receive in Life are like the dandelion. We do not always look at them the way children do. If we do see the beauty in the yellow, we do not  always appreciate the moment of change, when we are left standing with an empty stem.
God’s gifts are BLESSINGS From START to FINISH. It may not always look that way for us. Sometimes we do encounter weeds. We face setbacks, we face ugliness or loss. This stage is Still The Gift, We only Need to See It THAT WAY!
God has a Vision beyond our understanding!

James 1

2Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Start looking at His gifts with a thankful heart no matter what Stage you are in. Have HOPE, Have JOY, ADORN Your head with HIS BLESSINGS because YOU ARE HIS!
BELIEVE in His Promises! Recall His truth while in the midst of a change.
Look forward to the many seeds and lessons that He will spread from this moment.

We go through many seasons in this life and every single one will serve its purpose. The true gift, is that God is with us every step of the way.

Philippians 1:6
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

John 11:4
But when Jesus heard this, He said, “This sickness is not to end in death, but for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it.”

God Bless you today and may you find His Love within the beautiful weeds!

  1. I absolutely ♡love♡ this! When I was in elementary school, I picked and gave a dandelion to a teacher. She yelled at me and told me it was a weed! Then, it made me sad. Now, I laugh when I tell the story! And if a child ever hands me a dandelion, I will cherish it! ♡
