Resolved to Win

Columbine - Resolved to Win I wrote about the Columbine flower on my Instagram the other day. It’s a stunningly beautiful flower that is one of my new favorites.

It’s meaning is “resolved to win”. That resonated so deeply with my heart. We are serving at a summer camp where we get to see high schoolers see Jesus for the very first time.

We serve a God resolved to win souls in a very tangible way.

In the midst of tragedy, we are in a place where we are surrounded by friends who wrestle with the unfairness of terrorism and who Jesus is in the midst.

We serve a God resolved to win over evil.

When I saw this flower, I was so overcome by the Lord’s resolution to win over broken souls in a broken world.

In disappointing moments where I don’t understand the plan.

I am resolved to win over anxiety.

When I don’t want to forgive.

I am resolved to win over my bitterness

On days where it feels as though I don’t make a difference.

I am resolved to win because I serve a God resolved to win me.
