We can learn a lot of lessons from flowers! My favorite flower is the Stargazer lily. If you think about it, whenever we look at a flower, we should remember not to worry about the uncertainties of the future. Just as God cares so delicately about the lily, he cares infinitely more about you and me! He holds our hopes and dreams in His hands. He will provide us with the strength and patience to trust in His goodness and His plan.
As I said, the Stargazer lily is my favorite flower. Often when I look at the Stargazer, I draw some additional lessons from it. Jesus is known as the Lily of the Valley. He really must be beautiful if He is anything like the lily! The Stargazer tells a hidden story. If you look at the pedals of the Stargazer, you will find that they begin a reddish-pink color and change to white. The Stargazer is a picture of what we are like when the precious blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from our sin. We are declared righteous when we confess that we have sinned against God and believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay our penalty. On the Stargazer, the red represents the blood of Jesus, and the white represents the fact that we are declared righteous. The green of the stem represents our growing to know His Word and growing to know better who He is. Lastly, in name and in actuality, we should be like the Stargazer and always look heavenward in worship of our Savior who created us.
On a different note, this arrangement of flowers is probably the nicest that I have ever seen! Besides the beauty of the Stargazer, the little red flowers with their yellow highlights perfectly accent the arrangement.
