How the Wildflowers Grow

How the Wildflowers Grow
by Melissa Campbell
Faces beaming, soaking Son
Drenched with healing, victory won
Breaking open, reaching, free
Shouting praise jubilantly
Joy awakening, colors bloom
Smearing fragrance, gleaning truth
Weeping tears to flow as springs
  Rain-washed petals behold their King
Beauty graceful, wings on Wind
Whirling, twirling, resting again
Daring to hope, dreaming bold dreams
Declaring dominion in holy decree

Women rising, daughters, sisters, moms
Seeing, being, peaceful balm
Rainbows reaching, hover low
Announcing freedom, proclaiming hope

Oh, taste and see the beauty
Give glory to the King
The wildflowers grow lovely
As they laugh and dance and sing

“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you of little faith." ~ Luke 12:27-28 (NIV)

I wrote this after spending a weekend with an army of beautiful daughters of God, all wildflowers blooming into maturity,  "spunky"  and bold.  I give thanks to the women from Church at the Heights who organized the conference, and all my sisters who boldly shared their beauty, and special thanks to our speaker, J. Lee Grady, who carries and imparts the Father's heart for His girls.

  1. Hello, Melissa! This is lovely. I have missed your beautiful words, friend. Happy Easter to you.

  2. I remember when I came back from Blissdom and every.woman. I. met. suddenly related to me immediately and strongly. I think it was residual estrogen from being around 700 women all those days. But I got residual inspiration too – like you did – I get it. I heart this!!! But then I always do. “The wildflowers grow lovely As they laugh and dance and sing. I get it :)

    I heart your words, really I do. Today is “in between” Saturday – Tomorrow I wish a Happy Easter to you. God bless and keep you and all of yours.

    Oh and I wrote three Easter poems – who knows maybe poetry will stop trying to kill me – like a horse being broken – but still – I’m not like you – one is on Love – the other two on Deep into Scripture – I heart them – in the tag cloud click “poema”. I want a real poet to read them. Hmmm – who could I be talking about…

  3. Hi, long lost glad I read this. It is lovely in every way. Trust you are well and miss you! it's been crazy here getting ready to move...sending love:) and hugs:)

  4. What a beautiful poem, thanks for sharing:)

  5. Just saying hi - I figure there must be a might reason why your words aren't new here. Want you to know I've prayed for you and whatever that reason might be. I heart your words Melissa. Take however long you need. I'll be back. God Bless you.


I welcome and appreciate your kind words and comments.
