Sunflowers Turn To The Sun – Turn To God

Reason For Writing About This Flower

Sunflowers turn towards the sun to survive. Do you know that? Now, what is so special that I write an article on it?

First of all, I love sunflowers and they are one of my favorites, besides yellow roses, daffodils and freesias. Then, secondly, sunflowers are not ordinary flowers. Why do I say that?

Well, many women around the world love them. For instant, when you have a vase of sunflowers in your room, they catch everyone’s attention in that room immediately.

For the obvious reason, they put smiles on faces because they are bright and cheery. In light of that, I hope to draw your attention to why they are indeed special.

Interesting Facts


Let me share some interesting facts about them:

These are the 3 facts:

  • More than sixty different varieties of sunflowers can be found in the world. Out of all these, the most common one is bright yellow, with dark brown centers filled with seeds.
  • A sunflower head is made up of 1,000 to 2,000 individual flowers that are joined together to a base. The large petals that are found around the edge of a sunflower are individual ray flowers, these do not develop into seeds.
  • At the same time, a single sunflower can have up to 2000 seeds.  A distinguishing quality of the sunflower is that its flowering head tracks the sun’s movement. This occurrence is known as “heliotropism.”

In august 2009, I grew some of these flowers myself and they amazed me. As a result, I took several photos of them.

More Facts

I planted some ‘evening Sun’ in my garden. At the same time, I also noticed many tiny flowers grew out of the base head of the sunflowers. As a result, out of a single sunflower, I got up to 2000 seeds. Yes, I had a wonderful harvest of sunflower seeds, that year.

Sunflowers According to science, sunflowers exist from evolution. How is this possible? On the contrary, through creative design, I see God’s hands in it. He creates his best handiwork through patterns and details.

Have you wonder at how colors blend together beautifully and how they capture our eyes in an instant? Can science explains it all?

Until you plant and observe these flowers, you may never appreciate their uniqueness and the way God designs them.

Sunflowers Turn Towards The Sun

If you remember, these sunflowers track the sun. They turn towards the source, the sun. Therefore, the flowers yearn for a source much greater than themselves.

Today, I would like to share a truth from the Bible with you. The Bible says in Matthew 6:28 – 34

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that 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, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. “

I Have Good News For You

I have great news for those who believe the Bible. God cares about you! If He takes care of the flowers that bloom today and are gone by tomorrow, would He not also take care of you?

The truth remains that when God’s one and only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ die on the Cross for our sins  John 3:16 says:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

What Sin Have I Done?

Have you lied? Do you know, ‘white lies’ are lies? Did you covet? Do you believe God exist? For example, do you believe He creates you?

When you trust the pilot to get you to your vacation destination safely, that is faith. Have you instinctively trust in your natural ability above trusting God? Do you hoard your possessions rather than let God controls what you have?

If your answers are Yes, then you have not trust Him. Choose today whom you will serve. Is it God or self or the devil? Jesus says:

“I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father (God) except through me.” John 14:6

He who has the Son (Jesus) has life, he who does not have the Son of God has not life. May you be truly blessed this day!
