Consider the Lilly's

Spring is here, and with it came snow.  Again.

Turn on the news, or the radio and within minutes we can get overwhelmed.  Begin to worry about tomorrow.  Things don't seem to make sense anymore.

And then tragedy and heartache  touches close and it isn't just news on TV it's personal. That's when life, like the warm spring interrupted and blanketed in snow tempts us to spin, toil - wonder if we've been forgotten.  The unexpected can weigh us down, bow our heads low. .
 
Consider the lilies
They don't toil or spin
And there's not a king
With more splendor than them
Consider the sparrow
They don't plant or sow
But they're fed by the master
Who watches him grow

We have a heavenly father above
With eyes full of mercy
And a heart full of love
He really cares when
Your head is bowed low
Consider the lilies
And then you will know

May I introduce you
To this friend of mine
Who hangs out the stars
And tells the sun when to shine
He kisses the flowers
Each morning with dew
But He's not too busy
To love me and you

We have a heavenly father above
With eyes full of mercy
And a heart full of love
He really cares when
Your head is bowed low
Consider the lilies
And then you will know

I'm amazed every time I watch the strength and praise to God His children show when asked to weather an unexpected storm.    

Whatever your storm is, be encouraged He gives life and strength to bloom in the midst of it.  He really does care!  

Happy Wednesday y'all!
