Much like the temperature of our lounge, that fluctuates with the sun, we can choose to warm it via the fireplace, or open the curtains and let the real source of warmth in. And, as the lounge warms up, we open the door to the entrance hallway, and the heat then spreads through the rest of the home. Of course we could skip the fire, and just be cold and miserable, in the hope that it warms up with out any effort on our part. But, like life, that just doesn't happen! It's often said that hope isn't a strategy. But, it can be! Especially when that hope is not in a 'something', but it is placed upon a 'someone': that someone has a name, and His name is Jesus
Sunflowers always make me smile. They always do! There is something truly happy about a sunflower. And much like sunflowers, we need to try and track the sun. In our case, the Son of God. Little but of wordplay, but you get the idea. Because we can sometimes feel like God has gone cold either on us, or at us. Either way, we’re wrong – if you’re feeling like you’ve lost the warmth of God’s face on yours, make like a sunflower, and track His face to feel His warmth once more.
