These flowers are on the small side of things, they are not much taller than the grass that surrounds them. (And no, we do not have super long grass.)  Although they may be small, these flowers still give God glory and show His amazing handiwork. We can be like these flowers. No matter how small or insignificant you may be, you can still give God glory and show His amazing handiwork. Let Him live through you and live each day to bring glory to His name. Stand tall like these flowers and bring the Lord glory and honor!

Carrying God’s Banner

Posted by Emma on April 24, 2010 | Filed under: Analogies,Christianity,Daily Thought,Picture Perfect


Soliders carry the banner of the king or country they are fighting for. We should carry the Lord’s banner as soldiers in the Lord’s army. We must carry it boldly and proudly. As I was thinking of this picture the words to Am I a Soldier of the Cross came to mind.

Am I a solider of the cross,
a follower of the Lamb?
And shall I fear to own His cause
or blush to speak His name?

Must I be carried to the skies
on flowery beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize
And sailed thru bloody seas?

Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile word a friend to grace,
To help me on to God?

Sure I must fight if I would reign:
Increase my courage, Lord;
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy word.

The Lord’s banner is His name, His cause, His word. Psalm 20:5 “We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our¬†banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.” Bear it boldly as a good soldier of Jesus Christ!

Five Lessons from a Pencil

Posted by Emma on April 21, 2010 | Filed under: Analogies,Christianity,Daily Thought,Picture Perfect,World Changer


I first heard this several years ago. It came back to me today when I was needing inspiration for what to take a picture of.

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.

“There are 5 things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be.”

“One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone’s hand.”

“Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.”

“Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.”

“Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.”

“And Five: On every surface you are used, you must leave your mark. No matter what the conditions, you must continue to write.”

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Now replacing the place of the pencil with you. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God’s hand.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life, but you’ll need it to become a stronger person.

Three: You will be able to correct mistakes you might make.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s on the inside.

And Five: On every surface you walk through, every person you may touch, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue to do your duties.

Allow this parable on the pencil to encourage you to know that you are a special person and only you can fulfill the purpose God has ordained for you.

Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot make a change. You can change the world if you always leave God’s mark on people. Let the Lord write His story with you. Live life with purpose in your heart.
