Sunflowers are known for their ability to turn the flower heads toward the sun, or other strong sources of light. They are often used as an analogy for Christians needing to continually follow Christ through their lives and even through the day.
What struck me this morning was how, through the extremely cloudy sky, the sunflowers were still facing the direction of the sun.
Sometimes God will withdraw Himself from our presence – there can be multiple reasons for this: we have distanced ourselves from Him, or He is testing us to see if we will continue to seek Him.
But we need to be like the sunflowers; even when our skies are cloudy, or lives are difficult, we should still be seeking out God. Just because there are clouds does not excuse us from looking for Him.
