Today, the gardener stopped by my home. He tends to our roses which bloom beautiful, last for a while, then die away. They need to be cut off to make room for the fresh flowers to open…
Sometimes, our faith can act in the same way. At times, it blooms fresh and beautifully. At other times, it withers a bit, and sort of dies down. But one thing is true, as it is with the roses…the main rose bush always remains to give continual nourishment.
In the same way, God stands with us, and never stops feeding us. Our faith-feelings may wax and wane, our blooms may be bright, and then diminish somewhat. But the Lord will always nourish our spirits and bring about the blooms of faith again and again. We must never lose that thought and hope as we walk day by day with Him!
If we can let go of what the world says, and take hold of what the Lord says, we will improve our lives by so much. Are you up to trying it?
“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
“Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”
“Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion, That I not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the LORD?” Or that I not be in want and steal, And profane the name of my God.…”
“If we walk in the Light, as He is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another. And our sins are continually washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ.”
~1 John 1:7
