I took a picture of the beautiful roses outside our house. With the weather like it is, this rose and others are frozen in a soon-to-bloom state. But, the weather will prevent that. It will stay for a while like it is but then die without ever realizing it’s purpose ??? to bloom in beauty.
We must be mindful of the weather, spiritually. Without careful attention to the conditions around us, we could be caught off guard and try to bloom in the midst of a deep freeze.
Locate yourself in God. Know the conditions in which you are living and be guided by Him, knowing when the time to unfold and bloom is come.
