Wild flowers are my favorite because they are raw and real and can’t be tamed. They are uncontrollably beautiful! They grow together where God planted them, exactly as he intended. Individually, they are unique and stunning, but together, they make a spectacular landscape only the true Gardener could grow.
Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. Luke 12:27 (NIV)
God wants us to be like the wild flowers, secure in our identities, growing together in a way that reflects his glory and attracts people to him. Unfortunately, in many cases, our original design has been devoured by the enemy. We have been attacked by life circumstances, defiled by our own doing, burned by the church or other women, polluted by the world, riddled with shame, and scattered to places of isolation.
BUT GOD, THE GREAT RESTORER...
He removes our guilt and shame, transforming our stony, stubborn hearts.
He gives us his Spirit, gently instructing us to follow his ways, because they are best.
He restores us, cleanses our impurities, uproots the weeds, and plants new resilient crops that will bring a plentiful harvest. We will lack no good thing.
“This is what the Sovereign LORD says: When I cleanse you from your sins, I will repopulate your cities, and the ruins will be rebuilt. The fields that used to lie empty and desolate in plain view of everyone will again be farmed. And when I bring you back, people will say, ‘This former wasteland is now like the Garden of Eden!’” Ezekiel 36:33-35 (NLT)
This is what the Lord is doing. Sisterhood is here to help cultivate good soil around our hearts, so God can restore and grow something more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Won’t you join us?
Blessings & All My Love,
