Perspective

Image ©2014 James L. Swindle

You're never too small, and never too tall,
Never too fragile, never too strong,
Never too young, never too old,
To follow God's plan, to live for the Lord.

His planning is perfect. He made you just right
For finding your purpose in his holy light.
Don't look down on others, nor look up at them,
And think you can't do it. He'll do it in you.

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.
(1 Corinthians 12:4-6 ESV)

Of the thousands of photos I've taken, this photo of the dandelion and the palm tree is one of my very favorites. Several people asked me where I took the photo. It was between a car dealer's lot and a WalMart store. You don't have to go to some tropical island to find beauty--and you don't have to wait for a better year to find the Lord's plan for your life. Just start loving him and obeying him today, this minute, where you are. Turn to Jesus--or turn to him again. He has the power. He'll use you for building up his church, for his glory
