Now most of my rose bushes are in the stage below and will probably bloom sometime this week.
No discipline seems pleasant at the time but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Heb. 12:11
Being confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Phil 1:6
There is a time for everything and a season for activity under the sun. Ecc. 3:1.
Dear God, Help me to not get in the way of the growth you are making happen in my life. May I rejoice in the blooms all around me. May I be understanding to those who are struggling and are in a different stage than I am. May I bloom for you so that I may bring glory to your name. Amen
