I was staring at the withered tulips on my desk and I realized how beautiful they still look even if their petals are starting to fall off.
It made me think how I can wither beautifully also. In a sense, when I have trials, problems or struggles that I can still respond in a way that is pleasing to God. It’s hard.
This week for me has been a high and low. Happy, not happy moments. And there were days that I can’t help but complain and become ungrateful. Honestly, it didn’t make things better. It just made me feel worst.
Indeed, I need to always pray and ask God to remind me to always be thankful in all circumstances. It takes trust and submission to God to continue to be grateful despite the tough times.
It’s just amazing how God uses our trials in life to something great. Though at times, this is something that we fail to hope for.
So how should we wither beautifully? Be thankful! Trust God!
