These flowers are a symbol to me of the amazing beauty of abundant LIFE.
Today is Pentecost Sunday. One of the most graphic reminders given to me this day was that so often Pentecost is seen as all about POWER, or all about GOD’s GIFTS.
Am I? are you? prone to the invasive condition called P.L.O.M. (poor little old me) syndrome. Pentecost occurred so those who believe and choose to follow Jesus may be able to overcome PLOM. His Presence for eternity is the POWER TO GIVE LIFE …..in all circumstances – even to redeem the broken, grief of desperate circumstances . The Christian God, revealed in Jesus Christ, is now, through the HOLY SPIRIT available everywhere – even in our most needing times. He is the ONE we actually cling to, the ONE who is REAL ………all we have to do is KNOW…..His Presence. and to have a prayer life – not like a shopping list – but really connect with the DIVINE. Talk to Him, share and ask and relate to Him. One to ONE…….an abundant life…..An ongoing journey with an eternal destination.
Think about this, Ponder. Have a great week!
