Flame-colored blooms teemed of glory as they stretched towards the sun. Each long stalk stood strong, determined to reach the heights in spite of the chaos erupting where leaves and stems met the earth. The long, graceful leaves of the day-lilies bunched and looped and fought for space in the garden, but regardless of the surrounding bedlam, their orange faces posed with mouths wide open, ready to be filled.

The Lord spoke to me through the day-lilies.

I believe the Lord would say to us, Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. Focus your gaze on Me, stretch away from the chaos with intention, with determination and I will not disappoint. I stand ready to fill you with good things. I stand ready to sustain you with life and joy and peace. Taste and see that the Lord is good! I AM the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt. I did not shove you. I did not crack a whip and herd you out of there. I brought you out, leading, guiding, caring for you. I will never leave you nor forsake you. You are Mine.

Beloved, your Heavenly Father cares deeply for you. He knows your pain, your worries. He knows everything there is to know about you.

And He loves you anyway.

I want to be like the day-lily. I want to stretch high above the chaos, the turmoil, and busyness of life – high enough that my face is turned towards heaven and I see the Lord face to face. And then with a heart of praise I want to open my mouth wide so He can fill it with His goodness.

“I AM the Lord your God, 
who brought you out of the land of Egypt; 
Open your mouth wide, 
and I will fill it.” 
~ Psalm 81:10
