This flower made me realize Christians are the same. If we are removed from other believers, we will fall, wilt and eventually die. We need each other, the nutrients from the soil and to be watered.
When we drive into Ziguinchor we pass a trash dump. This trash dump was used up until maybe 6-9 months ago. It was constantly being burned and having more trash dumped into it. It was foul smelling an so ugly to look at.
However, when we drive by it now, there are beautiful flowers growing out of the pit.
This trash dump reminds me that no matter the trash in our lives, He can make us beautiful.
When we put our faith in Him, he makes us new. He takes away the trash and makes beautiful flowers grow.
