Be a sunflower—follow the light

“Keep your face to the sunshine, and you cannot see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do.” This statement, which has been attributed to Helen Keller, shows remarkable insight. 

Sunflowers are known to turn their faces toward the sun and follow it from east to west over the course of the day. Even on the darkest days, sunflowers will follow the sun as it shines through the cloud cover, because sunlight supports their development. To me, this is a perfect illustration of how we can expect to receive wonderful blessings when we turn to God’s continuous, healing light, even when confronted by difficult situations.
