This is a poem I wrote a few months ago that I found the other day. I hope it is a reminder to You that Christ is our foundation during our storms. Just as a flower blossoms into a beautiful array of petals after the rain, our storms can deepen our faith in Him.
“A bud new and pure,
Soon to be tossed and made to endure.
I wonder how much different the flower would be,
Without the rain and the wind and the storms it sees.
Without an anchor,
It will will be shaken and swayed,
Tossed by the wind-
The colors fade.
But built upon a firm foundation,
with the anchor deep,
The storms will shape instead of shake
And it will sprout and reap. “
