Tulips have become a bit of a feature in my life. It was my birthday recently, and I ended up with a few bunches around my room from some wonderful friends. I got a new job around the same time, and we celebrated with some tulips. They’ve fast become my favourite flowers – I love the colours and the way they open in the light.
Recently, in a moment where I needed a little refresher of hope, I felt God nudge me to look up the meaning of the tulips that are sat on my dresser right now. And this is what a quick Google search threw up:
– Perfect, enduring love
– Royalty, or regal nature
– Abundance, prosperity and indulgence.
WOW. How crazy big is this love that God has for us. In whatever season of life we are in, His promise is that He will give us perfect peace, He sustains us, He gives us hope and a future. In Him, we are royalty, we have a worth and hope and life is full of hope and enjoyment. And He gives us lives that are full, full of joy and peace and life.
Like the tulips, that promise is full of so much beauty.
