Irises From Miss Sally

They're so fresh and radiant!
This Sunday we were given the most beautiful bouquet...

I was also thinking about something that day. I was given the most cristal clear image of humility and grace...and that was from the Lord.
I was overwhelmed by the extent- the eternal, everlasting extent of Him, His love, His understanding. Even in our strongest extent, when in the glorious light of the Lord, we are so small and weak. When we reach our highest point of praise, we are still low. What gets me is the sincere humility and grace that belongs to Him.
It runs so deep.
We give Him our heart, stained and torn as it is, but that is all He wants...He wants to make it new. He can look at us and see beauty and radiance, even though He really is just looking at His reflection in us.
Just imagine the humility and grace it would take for us to face the fact that someone was great when it was really you who did it, and you who was great. Just stop and think on this...How big He is. His love is everlasting.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound!
"Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men." 1 Corinthians 1:25 (Verses 26-31 go well too!)
Our Irises have already wilted...
It's just a tiny reminder to me of our wilted lives, and the radiance He brings. No strings attached.
