Secret Place Devo – Wallflower or Wildflower

Leave a comment

 

The following one of my devos is the April 24 devotion in The Secret Place. (It’s based on my Wallflower or Wildflower post from last year, so the content may be familiar to some of you.)

James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift comes from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

We catch our reflection in the mirror and see our mousey brown hair and our body shape that has always made us insecure, and we think we were meant to fade into the crowd. It’s easy to believe that the important life assignments are reserved for confident, poised, beautiful people.

But the truth is God did not create us to be wallflowers. God blessed each of us with talents and purpose. Instead of wallflowers, we can be like wildflowers. Once wildflower seeds are tossed on the ground, they grow and spread, covering vast areas with brilliant color.

So go ahead. Throw your seed on the ground and listen to that quiet voice that never changes, but often gets drowned out. That voice whispers, “You are loved. You are worth it. I have blessed you with a good and perfect gift. Toss the seed, and I will make it grow.”
