Fading Flowers and Everlasting Glory

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Life is crazy. Full of joy and sorrow, direction and wandering, young and then old. Nothing is sure but change.

Like flowers, we can bloom. And like flowers, we can fail and fall aside.

But we are more than flowers. We are made in His image. If we choose, we can live unto the Lord. We can bloom in a drought, sing through the sorrow, rise to the challenge of a beaten world. Through Him we overcome. And knowing Jesus, we know that this is definitely not all there is.

Now, while it is still day, store up treasures that will not rust or be stolen. Live for Him, listening and obeying His Will. And when we leave this world, we can walk on streets of gold and be surprised at the treasures He stored for us.

Set your minds and hearts above and you will never fade away.

John 6:47
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
