Lily of the Field …
Have you ever pondered over the scripture in Matthew 6 about the lilies of the field? I’ve read it many times, but one day while reading it, I had this inner dialog with God about it. In my heart I thought: ” I can’t imagine not worrying. You mean you really don’t want us to worry? How can this be”?
So then I got this vision of a little lily on a hillside sitting in the sun. It was just beaming and unfettered. Everything in its life was taken care of. It was free to just soak in the sun and soak in the love of God.
That’s what God wants for us. He wants us to be free of worry and strife. He wants us to trust him and depend on him to provide for us. For us to trust him with our dreams, and put all of or fears in his hands.
The vision was so beautiful and serene and just filled me with wonder. I had to write a song about it.
Lily of the Field
Lily of the field you astound me so
Gently sleeping in the sun
Do you carry burdens deep within your soul
Little flower in the sun.
Lily of the field will you answer me
Is there nothing to be sewn
If I were to wake you or disturb your sleep
Would you make your answer known.
Lily how you shine within your circumstance
Even when your world has come undone
Even when the darkest of clouds appear
Lily is still shining in the sun
Lily of the field give me eyes to see
The untold secret of your peace
As I kneel beside you among your gentle beams
Won’t you share it with me
