1 Corinthians 13
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35
It has been said that April showers bring May flowers. If you’ve had April showers, don’t be surprised if God awaits with a gorgeous bouquet of May flowers. It could come tomorrow. Perhaps it won’t come until sometime later. But don’t be discouraged.
Jesus Christ will bring His elegant bouquet, everything perfectly arranged. He may resolve your turmoil just as you prayed. He may resolve it in a different, much better way. Or He may choose not to resolve it all. Still, you can be assured His thoughts are higher than your thoughts and His plan is perfection. He knows what is best for you.
Someday He will knock, holding your bouquet of May flowers. They will be your favorite color, beautiful and bright and wonderfully scented, a sweet savor unto the Lord.
Your April showers could be anything: trouble, sickness, sin. Perhaps they have left you feeling unworthy of God’s attention and love. Understand that His is an unconditional love, and you have done nothing for which He won’t forgive or restore you.
God’s May flowers are a symbol of His eternal love that was demonstrated at the cross. He is able to cultivate them in season and out of season. They will have been planted, fertilized, and grown with the greatest of care by the ultimate Gardener. Jesus will bring the flowers after using your April showers to water them perfectly.
Lord, I thank You for the April showers that bring May flowers in my life.
