Every time we step out of our apartment block’s lift lobby, these are the flowers that greet us – the Lady Di Heliconia Psittacorum. Their dark rose-red bracts and cream-yellow sepals contrast dramatically with the bright green leaves. While the Heliconia Rostrata flowers (here) hang downwards like birds or claws, these heliconias point upwards, like hands raised in worship.
When we draw closer to God, we begin to notice that He speaks to us through His creations. Sadly, most of the time we are surrounded or preoccupied with so many man-made things that bear little semblance to the God through whom all things exist.
And then we wonder why God is not present in our lives. By R
“I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.” Psalm 145:1-5 (NASB)
