This is a picture of a dandelion covered with dew.
Most of us relate the dandelion to feelings of scorn. Their daisy-like blooms quickly turn into a hideous fountainhead that requires only the slightest breeze to send seeds floating in pursuit of a spot in our otherwise manicured lawns. They are known to create deep, strong root systems that take every garden tool in the shed to extract! Yet, here they exude an incomparable beauty. Challenging the old adage, you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
With that said, I want to share with you something that caught my eye this morning while perusing the internet:
Nope, not done yet.
It tells the story of a second coming of Jesus Christ, the Messiah to millions of Christians, but just plain Ben Jones to family and friends. Ben, whose real name is Zion Avrohom, is a hard-drinking man who lives in a dirty apartment in The Bronx,
. He smokes dope and has relations with women and men. New York
Are you sitting again after falling in the floor? Good, then I’ll continue. My first reaction was grabbing my chest as I gasped for air. Then, I started thinking…
So how do we turn this pig into silk?
We pray! We post about it, offering the truth. If we as Christians did not have some sort of darkness to shine the light on, we wouldn’t have a ministry. So I choose to embrace this with determined vigor and spin some silk!
Job 12:22 He floods the darkness with light, he brings light to the deepest gloom.
