Spring is such an exciting time with new growth and the promise
of beautiful warm days ahead! My first flower of Spring bloomed!
I was so excited to see it's bright shiny face as I walked to my car.
I didn't take time to grab the camera, but made a mental note
to take a picture of it the next day!
The next day came and so did lots of rain, wind and frost!
As I walked to my car the same little flower no longer held
its shiny bright face up, but its face was bowed to the ground
with the weight of the storm it had weathered.
As I stood there feeling sorry for this little fellow, I thought about how
the flower was still just as pretty, but it took a different perspective
to see it's beauty. It took me bowing down on a knee to
look and see the bright shiny face.
Just like this little flower, a lot of rain has come in my life and
with God's help I've weathered many storms. There are
times when the weight has my head bowed down also.
It's at these moments that my perspective changes and
on my knees I can see how God is truly
working and see His hand in my life.
He gives me the strength to
face the storm and lift my tired weak head to give
a bright shiny testimony of all He is capable of doing!
If you are in a storm, turn to Him and He will sustain you!
If you have just left the rain, allow your life to shine with
a testimony of His greatness!
