Dandelions - Rise Above the Circumstances
by Katherine Kehler Share page

I pray that you will begin to understand the incredible greatness of his power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead (Ephesians 1:19).

This is dandelion season, and whole fields are covered with the bright yellow flowers.  They are so cheerful and brighten the landscape. But they are not appreciated by most people because they are weeds — weeds that multiply profusely through their root system and their seeds, which fly through the air. Children love to blow the “puffy balls,” but each one is filled with many seeds. Dandelions can quickly take over a lawn or field.

Not only are they cheerful, dandelions are tenacious and powerful. They push their way through our paved driveway and grow above the grass that surrounds them.

My friend Lena is like that. She has had Multiple Sclerosis for many years. Early on she decided that she would determine her attitude each day. She would be a thermostat and set herself to “cheerful” and “thankful” each day. Whenever I was with her throughout the years, she was cheerful and thankful.

I have learned three lessons from dandelions. Be bright and cheerful all day long. Be tenacious and live above the circumstances. Multiply — reach people for Christ, and teach others to reach and teach.  

God offers us His supernatural power so that we can live supernaturally.  You can appropriate His power today.

Father, I realize that so often I live a mediocre life. I offer You my life today. Fill and empower me with Your Spirit. Change me into a person who lives above the circumstances and fills the air with cheerfulness and gratitude. Amen.
