The Flowers will Fall..

1 Peter 1:24-25 (NIV)

24 For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, 25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you.

Time Flies, when you are having fun... We have all heard this statement before and probably all used it at some point. What we probably miss is that it is such a true statement. Over the next couple months, my two boys will both  have birthdays one about to turn seven, and the other about to turn two... WHERE DOES TIME GO?

As we are flowing through fall and vastly approaching winter we are seeing the grass all die back, flowers falling, all the leaves change and fall off trees. These things bring my attention to the words that are spoken in 1 Peter 1 "All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever".


To often we get to caught up in earthly things, that we forget about our relationship with Jesus. There will be a time when the things in this world that we wrap our selves up in will pass away... And we are left with our attention focused on God. We will grow old and wither, and "our" glory will fall. Today, make a new leap. Put your attention on your relationship with Jesus. Focus on the true things that matter... Because the "Word of the Lord, endures forever".

Let Him lead you, guide you, and mold you into who He wants you to be. God wants to commit His works to "faithful" men as the scripture says. God will not give you a position, a ministry, a blessing to make you faithful, obedient. He will bless those who have run the race, proved themselves and make the sacrifice.

It is not always easy to serve the Lord, it is not always easy to focus on Him and not the things that we enjoy, or would "rather" do.. But, God desires for us to make Him a priority and to always put Him first and trust Him for the rest. Remember, the Word of the Lord, Endures Forever...

Today, Make a Commitment to God, that you will realign your Priorities and Focus on Him.

Because, Everything else will one day fade away...
