Living Like A Sunflower


This morning when I watered my sunflowers I noticed they were facing the sun as it rose in the east. At night they were facing the sun as it set in the west. The plant followed the sun all day.

I thought of my friend Kaydi who reads her bible every morning at six with a cup of coffee. I don’t start my day with God; I start my day with laundry or work.  I read in Psalm 5:3, ” In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”

Today I will turn my face towards Jesus. I will keep looking to him all day, and I will look to him as I fall asleep. I will pray, and read my bible. This morning I will lay my requests before God and wait in expectation.  I have watered my plants, now I will water my soul.
