UNFOLDING THE ROSEBUD - GOD'S WILL FOR OUR LIVES

 

 

 

THIS WAS GIVEN TO ME BY GOD IN 1974. AS I REMEMBER NOW, IT WAS A TIME OF CONFUSION AND BEWILDERMENT. I STUMBLED ACROSS A ROSEBUD AND STARTED TO OPEN IT, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT IT JUST FELL APART LIKE MY LIFE EVERY TIME I TRIED TO HELP IT OUT.

UNFOLDING THE ROSEBUD

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,

when in my hands they fade and die.

 

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,

this flower of GOD's design,

then how can I think I have wisdom

to unfold this life of mine?

 

So I'll trust in Him for His leading

each moment of every 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.

 

Pastor Darryl L. Brown
