THE WAITING…MAKES YOUR GARDEN GROW
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11)
I had a counselor tell me once that God did not promise us a rose garden but allows us the chance to grow our own…I didn’t get it then but I do now…and can now add to that because we see that it takes much light to grow roses; and water, even before we get the full bush we began to see buds…the buds aren’t beautiful…nothing about those that tell us what is inside..”can’t pick them now,” we think.
“They’re not ready,” we say. If we have ever seen them in full bloom then we know that it will be well worth the wait….I find the yellow roses so magnificent and even the pink ones fill me with the essence of their beauty…but we all know that attached to that beauty are thorns…hurtful things that if we are not careful they can bring severe pain…
So it is with life we have to wait for the good thing He promises…God that said He won’t with hold them…the good things..
So I say wait….
be careful to watch out for the thorns…
