The Glory of God

A Flowering Faith


Faith is the flower of this life
Its origin occurred
By just a tiny seed of hope
Watered by the Word.

It blossoms unexpectedly…
Will bloom just anywhere.
Its fragrance sends forth such a scent
None other can compare.

It needs to be picked frequently…
Enjoyed for its duration.
Expected to sprout once again
In any situation.

Re-blooming is climate controlled…
Depends on the care rendered
Growth periods cannot be reached
If belief is unattended.

The garden of a God set mind
Needs constant fertilizing…
Add nutrients of love and peace...
Weed out all criticizing.

Has the soil entrusted to your soul
Been watered regularly?
Exposed to lots of natural Light?
Is it pollutant free?

A flowering faith colors a life…
Each pedal writes a story.
To honor our most Holy God...
Gives Him the praise and glory.

~~Dedicated to Jennifer~~


Luke 12:27:
"Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not,
they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed
like one of these."


Song of Solomon 2:12
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the
singing of birds is come, and the voice of
the turtle is heard in our land;

Song of Solomon 2:1
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
