Have you ever wondered how wildflowers choose where they are going to grow? On the sides of highways, or in remote fields?
I don’t think they do choose, I think God seeds them where His love needs to be seen. Wildflowers are watered only by rain, fed by harsh soil, and yet they can capture the attention of every living thing. They offer a moment of pure wonder to all who gaze upon them.
Maybe that’s what God wants for us. To bloom where we are planted.
It’s no accident that we are seeded in our situations. Grown in our troubles.
Our lives should reflect the beauty of the wildflowers and cause others to pause and wonder how we can thrive in such a place.
The wildflowers have emerged in our fields, content among the cacti. A tangible reminder that God’s love doesn’t exist outside of pain, but overcomes and amazes.
