On our way to work we pass a wall covered with magnificent morning glories and creamy white flowers. In the morning, they bloom brilliantly. But on our way home in the afternoon, we see that they are shriveled and about to fall…and make way for a whole new batch coming the next morning! This reminds me of several Scriptures:
Exodus 16:17-18—Each family gathered manna and had “just enough” for a day.
Lamentations 3:23—”Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.”
2 Corinthians 12:9—“My grace is enough for you”—one day at a time.
1 Peter 1:24-25—”The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever.”
2 Corinthians 4:18—”So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
