Consider the Lilys

Consider The Lilies
Written by: Joel Hemphill

Verse I
Consider the lilies they don’t toil nor spin
And there’s not a king with more splendor than them
Consider the sparrow they don’t plant or sow
But they’re fed by the Master who watches them grow


We have a Heavenly Father above
With eyes full of mercy
And a heart full of love
He really cares when
Your head is bowed low
Consider the lilies and then you will know

Verse II

Now may I introduce you to this friend of mine
Who hangs out the stars and tells the sun when to shine
And kisses the flowers each morning with dew
But He’s not too busy to care about you

Our youth pastor's wife sang this song in church on Sunday...and it really had me thinking. Even the smallest of things can bring you around to thinking about God. This song had me thinking about my Lilyann. Just consider all that has happened to her...and God was there...he was holding her in His hand...and making sure that only what needed to happen to her was happening. I often wonder what goes through our little ones' minds. The minds that haven't been dirtied up by all the happenings in the world, the latest fashions, songs, accessories, etc.

Their minds are so innocent and yet so eager to learn.

Just think about it...consider the Lilys.
