Seeking the Sun

As I stepped out on to our small apartment patio this morning I saw our pansies had all been straining to reach what little bit of sun they could find.As I watered and tended to them I was struck with the thought that I too,as a believer in Jesus,must also seek the son.I must seek the Son of God.For it is then I will grow.It is then I will flourish.It is then I will bloom brightly for Him.It is then I will bless those around me.How about you,dear reader?Are you seeking the Son?
"Seek the Lord while He may be found.Call upon Him while He is near."
~Isaiah 55:3~
"As the deer pants for water brooks,So pants my soul for You,O God."

Good Morning Thora:
I find that God will very often(quite often) speak spiritual lessons to me through things in nature.And I'm glad He does!Blessings upon your day~Sharon

Hello Thora!Loved your post on Sunshine~Sharon

I'm trying to Sharon. Sometimes in the shadows we don't strain towards the son as much as your pansies do.

Sharon said...

I completely"get"what you spoke here.I too have been so deep in the shadows at times that it seemed I was even unable to strain at all towards the son as I knew I needed to do.A rough place to be in but it too passes and for that I am glad.Thank you for stopping by and blessings upon you~Sharon

Your post brings to mind this scripture...

Jeremiah 29
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Beautiful flowers! Which reminds me that I need to go water ours.

Oh yes Sparrow!I need to water ours as well!Bless you~Sharon
