Although I am not a huge fan of receiving roses or any flowers… I absolutely LOVE taking pictures of different types of flowers I find abroad.
In my opinion, flowers clearly demonstrate what belonging is all about.
The theme for this week automatically made me think of John 15:5:
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Once a flower becomes disconnected with the rest of the plant, it dies. It loses its beauty.
When we become disconnected from God… there’s really nothing positive to show for it. He gives us that sense of security, that sense of belonging. We often ask ourselves where God is when in reality we should be wondering where we are and why we keep on running.
This journey of becoming reconnected with God is not easy but I am learning that by staying connected, everything else takes care of itself. I know who I belong to…and at the end of the day, that is all that matters.
