As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
1 Peter 4:10
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:10
(The photo is of one of my Tambourines that I use in praise and worship. I name all my Tambourines as I feel each instrument has a different purpose. This Tamborine I named “Manifold” because it reflects light in so many ways. I use it in worship to praise God for His Manifold Grace And Wisdom according to the scriptures 1 Peter 4:10 and Ephesians 3:10 )
Seeing this little bunch of yellow flowers blooming brightly in a crack my daughter’s concrete driveway yesterday prompted this poem.
Previously, I had seen a few of these spritely yellow bursts of color in the green grass of her yard, however today, I happened to notice this little lone trio growing right in the paths of where cars come and go!
Surely at some point they had been run over or knocked down by a car tire, yet here they were standing tall in bloom!
Unlike their relatives in the grass who had been fortunate to receive refreshing drinks and showers from the garden water sprinkler, they had grown up among rocks, dry dirt, and concrete. Yet, they bloomed, and just as brightly.
Facing each new day
With an inner fortitude
To overcome and bloom!
Such a great lesson for us all.
As we face the hard times in life, let’s determine to not just survive them, but to show forth a positive attitude of achievement and success, so others will notice and be encouraged to do the same thru life’s challenges.
