When God Unfolds The Rose!
"Unfolding The Rose"
It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God's design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
God opens this flower so sweetly,
Then, in my hands, they die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God's design,
Then how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
So I'll trust in Him for leading
Each moment of my day.
I will look to Him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.
The pathway that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.
by Helen Steiner Rice
Not only do we need to trust God to guide our steps and direct our paths; to have complete faith in Him to unfold the rose petals of our lives, but to also trust Him to do the same for our children.
I think sometimes it is harder for us to surrender the plans we have for our kids to God, than to surrender ourselves.
We must remember that His plans for their lives is BEST and that only He can unfold the petals of their lives to their full beauty! Trust Him!
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!” Psalm 91:1,2
