I came across this passage of scripture during my daily reading yesterday. It along with vs.14 just seemed to jump out and grab me.
But I am trusting you, O Lord, saying, “You are my God!” My future is in your hands. Psalms 31:14-15a (NLT)
Life is fragile just like the precious flower this hand holds. Once that little bloom was attached to a stem, which had some roots supplying it’s nutrients. Yet something or someone came along and snatch this precious bloom from the place it once thrived.
At times my life seems to be like that little flower, one moment I’m blossoming in my planted place of comfort. Only to be uprooted by unexpected storms or changes in life. It is at those times that I can not see or understand why God allow these things to be. The darkness of the storm seems to shroud His hand from me.
Yet even in those times, I must remain confident that He indeed is God and my future is secure in His hands.
