Blossoming In the Storm

Blossoming In the Storm by Brenda Edwards

Yesterday, while spending some time contemplating, praying, and meditating, I kept thinking about how a seed has to fight its way through the soil, then through the stormy weather in order to produce a beautiful flower. I kept thinking about how freeing, beautiful, and serene flowers blossom. Each day stretching and yawning for the sun. Such beautiful freedom seen in their display.

What may seem like a period of storms and turmoil are times when God calls and draws us closer to Him. He longs for us to focus on Him and nothing else. He wants us to drink from the living waters and to be fed by His Word. He wants us to throw away the cloak of our sinful pasts and grow anew in His fruits. He wants to nurture us and help us thrive until we blossom and stretch out in the beauty and serenity of His love.

He wants us to rely and love on Him. He wants us to seek Him out and trust Him. He wants us to abide in Him and to grow in Him. That is how we weather the storms.
