Be Like The Sunflower

 We have a sunflower that came up in a pot close to the bird feeder.  It is growing so fast and appears so healthy.  I have watched our little plant in amazement as it follows the sun.  When I get up it has its' face turned toward the east and by noon it is standing straight and tall.  When I start closing the curtains in the evening it is reaching to the west viewing the sunset.  Such a neat object lesson as it is encouraging me to follow the Son each day and be willing to grow and bend and yield as He directs. 

Psalms 113:3 NIV From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised

Psalms 84:11 NIV For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.

Psalms 148:3 NIV  Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars.
