Through the Lens of Faith

There are beautiful cacti that bloom in different seasons. There are cacti who remain green through the darkest night and driest conditions. It’s really amazing how much these plants persevere. cactus

But one thing is certain with these plants — you can’t touch them. Their needles can hurt you. Yet these same needles protect the plant.

Sometimes we need to realize that the needle pricks we feel can actually be protecting us. They may hurt or give you a big jolt if they are deep, but at the same time you are protected from other things you might not be able to handle or even control.

When you feel challenged, take a lesson from the cacti — persevere as you were made to do!
