Still Water, Lilies and Trust

lilies

There it was,
right in front of me.
exquisite beauty
in the waning daylight
still water
and brilliant yellow lilies


And all I could think of were the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:28 & 29

“Consider:
the lilies of the field,
how they grow:
they neither toil
or spin,
yet I tell you,
even Solomon
in all his glory
was not arrayed
like one of these.”

I am reminded once again.
Even in uncertain times,

when what seems like Plan A doesn’t work
through no fault of my own
God knows.
and still has a plan.

And so I wait
paying attention
following his leading.

I will . . . ..
Wait for the LORD;

Psalm 27:1 – Be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD

    yes
    He knows
    and even knows
    how hard it is for us to wait

      thanks. it’s fun to hear from you as my son who is a developer for “Pure Charity” is spending the day her on his way to moving his family to Portland!
      thanks for visiting.

  3. I love how the Spirit reminds us of what’s true through the world in front of us. I can imagine Jesus sweeping his arms wide to the right or the left over a field of lilies, just as your eyes laid wide open these beautiful yellow ones, and the truth sinks in. Thank you for this.

  4. gorgeous, gorgeous reflection. literally.

    What a good reminder this is that God does lead and sometimes we do have to wait on him. We have some decisions that need to be made soon and I know that God will give us wisdom if we wait on Him. Oh, I love lilies, and those are so beautiful. Yellow is also one of my favorite colors for flowers.

      Gayle, thanks so much for your visit. Seems like when i was younger I thought as I got older it would be easier to wait – well not really, but we do know he promises wisdom.
