Unseen

Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste it’s sweetness on the desert air. —Thomas Gray

There is a lesson in the flowers: they are willing to offer themselves where there is no one to appreciate them.

Am I willing to serve Jesus in some obscure place? Unknown? Unheralded? Unseen? Living in quiet obedience, loving and praying, and little more?

Am I willing to run that risk for Jesus sake?

David Roper
2.13.7

Challenging thought in our image dominated culture. Egypt is envious.
Encouraging in the sense tha Jesus said that there is nothing hidden, which shall not be revealed. The Lord of the harvest knows how to multiply our labors. Amen?

I am always with you , you hold my right hand , you guide me with your counsel , and afterword you will take me to glory .
Whom have I in heaven but you ? And earth has nothing I desire beside you .
My flesh and my heart fail , But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever
Psalm 73:23-26

Only The wonderful gift of the precious Holy Spirt can I walk in faith believing , my life and all that's in it
All belong to Him and Him alone .

True Greatness How know I if thou shoulds’t me raise That I would there raise Thee? Perhaps great places and great praise  Do not...
