Flowers in the Storm

The myth is that storms have to do with punishment.

That they are God’s response to sin or

His disappointment in us as His children.

May I suggest that it is actually the opposite.

It is the confirmation that 

we are flowers planted by God

and He desires us to grow.

No matter how painful or inconvenient,

storms are necessary for the flower’s beauty.

To the beautiful struggle

of necessary storms in our lives.


and don’t

be afraid to grow.
