Right outside my door sits this beautiful flower pot overflowing with purple petunias. Just a simple reminder that I’m surrounded by blessings!
Today I was looking at it and thinking how awesome the color purple is! “Majesty” is the word that comes to mind when I see purple. Purple is royal, stately, it bears a quality of grandeur. It makes me think of Jesus – the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
I think if the flowers could sing, they’d be singing praises to King Jesus, our beloved Lord and Savior—
“Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” 1 Chronicles 29:11

“Taste and see that the Lord is good.” ~Psalm 34:8
Life doesn’t always feel good, yet the Psalmist writes, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”
Jesus never promised us a “feel good” life. Rather, He promised us HIS LIFE. And He is good, no matter how circumstances appear. While speaking to His disciples about the troubles that were ahead, He says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

After walking awhile, my nephew bent down to take a close up photograph of a tiny yellow plant which I assumed was a weed. It was so small that I didn’t see it’s beauty at first.

Feeling sad or discouraged?
Life doesn’t always feel good, and singing may be the last thing on your mind. But if you’re feeling sad or discouraged today, sing to God, for He is worthy. Singing takes your focus off your troubles and places it on God- the One who loves you, cares about you, and can meet your needs. Praise is powerful and can push back the darkness. God inhabits the praises of His people! (Psalm 22:3).
