It's JUST water.... we see it all over the place. We love to play in it, to drink it, to enjoy it's beauty... and sometimes we fear it, but it is JUST water. Hmmm.
Okay, I am issuing a warning here.... the next pictures may be a bit hard to look at... but we all know the time is coming where these will be here... so be prepared.....
The treacherous roads and walkways come also... with ice and snow...
Yes, yes, I know.... it hurts to think about, but it is coming... snow and the cold along with it.... another form of water... it is "just" water.
We enjoy the snow, the sledding, the beautiful snow covered scenes.... and we fear the snow covered streets... the slippery surfaces, the endless shoveling, the severe cold.
The intricacy of snowflakes is amazing.... what a marvel of design.
Then there is water that comes and stays were it shouldn't... causing flooding of varying proportions... a simple backyard flood.........or huge devastating floods that threaten lives and property.
Different plants react differently to the water droplets.. some resist it and it flows right off... others allow it to cling, creating a special look.
Even plain grass in our yards, has a special kind of loveliness when seen up close with all the jeweled drops of water clinging to it.
God uses "just" water... He makes it beautiful, useful, reflective, and more. If He can do that with "just" water, what could He do with us?
It makes me wonder... what am I reflecting? What am I clinging to? If I cling to Jesus, it only makes sense that He will be reflected in me... and give glimpses of him to those around me.
Like water is "just" water, I am "just" me.... but God is the One who transforms and who creates loveliness we have never imagined. Instead of wanting others to see "me", I can want others to see the One reflected in me...
Thank you for visiting today..... I hope you are able to see the delightful beauty of "just" water.... and the delightful beauty of those reflecting God, instead of themselves. I hope you have a great day. :)
