Live in Full Bloom
When a flower blooms there are many uncertainties. No one knows how long it will live. No one knows how many days of sunshine or rain it will have. No one knows how many storms it will weather. No one knows if it will be picked. No one knows if it will be dug up or trampled on. No one knows when it will die. No one knows.
The same is true for your life. When you are born, no one knows how long you will live. No one knows how much joy or pain you will experience. No one knows the hardships or troubles that you will face. No one knows if you will be included or excluded. No one knows how well you will be treated. And no one knows when your time on earth will expire. No one knows.
God only knows. Only God who formed you and created you knows. He is with you from the beginning to the end and then into eternity. The space between your birth and death is your life. Your life is beautiful like a flower in full bloom. The love and joy you feel when you see flowers is the same love and joy God feels when he sees you. Because he loves you, you were born. Because he loves you, he sustains you. Because he loves you, he promises to be with you forever. We should love him because he first loved us. We should praise him because he loves us. We should thank him because he loves us. We should honor him because he loves us. We should trust him because he loves us. Life is full of uncertainties but God is tried and true and he is full of love for you. Live your life in the light of God’s presence and live like a bright beautiful flower in full bloom.
“We love Him because He first loved us.”
I John 4:19
