I suppose that roses are more beautiful, lilacs smell sweeter, lily of the valley are more regal with their delicate little bells. Still, I would choose dandelions.
In the heat, in the cold, in the sunshine, in the shade, in good soil or bad- they flourish. They can be mowed over, dug up, cut down and they still spread and grow. Brilliant glowing yellow that covers fields and forest floors.
I would be queen of the dandelions because that’s how I want to be. Glowing Son-light in the heat, in the cold, in the sunshine, in the shade, rain, storm, good, bad, mowed over, dug up, cut down… I want to flourish.
I want my roots to be dug down deep. Latched firmly in the soil of life. I want the Word of God to be so strong in me that no matter the storm, no matter the trial, no matter the pain- I flourish.
Starting next week I will be writing a new series. For eight (or so) weeks, on Monday mornings, I’ll be discussing ways to study the Word of God. Tricks that I’ve learned, or have been taught. Things that dig me down deep into who Christ is and what He wants from my life.
