Isn’t it interesting how sunflowers always turn their face toward the sun? The fact is, they follow the sun across the sky. Experiment with it yourself. Position the sunflower away from the window and you will discover that in a short time the sunflower will resume its original position—facing toward the sun. With amazing persistence, the sunflower will refuse to face the darkness. It will insist on ever looking toward the light.
Let’s learn a lesson from the sunflower. Let’s not allow ourselves to face toward the gloom and doom of life. Let’s never sit down in the shadows of sorrow and let the night cast the dark shadows of gloom and despair upon us. Let’s turn our faces toward the light. Adversity should serve to make us better and give us renewed skill and power; it should make our hearts softer, our spirits kinder, and give us a more gentle touch. Let’s learn needed lessons, and then go on to experience new love and better service.
Stay positive like the sunflower. Turn away from negativity. Keep your chin up. Always look toward the positive.
