One morning in Spring, David and I were out for a walk with the dogs, in the lane near our house. As usual, while we walked I was keeping an eye open for something interesting to photograph.
A dandelion at my feet caught my attention. The ground is always covered in them, but this one stood out from the rest because it had lost half of its fluffy seeds. It looked odd.
Did you ever, as a child, like to pick a dandelion and blow the fluffy bits into the air, to make a wish? The first thought that popped into my head was, “well, if anyone wanted that one, that’s half of its ‘wishes’ gone.”
Then suddenly, out of nowhere, a puff of wind took the rest of the seeds clean off and just the bare stem stood there.
Wishes are Futile
Wishes are futile. If you are a child of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, then YOUR life is built, not on wishes but on the solid hope of knowing that your life is anchored in Him. When the harsh winds of life come and blow away all your futile wishes, and other idols, Jesus remains, steadfast and unchanging.
Be blessed today, with His peace and His presence, and the knowledge that however strong the wind blows, your hope in Him can never be ‘blown away.’
