Of course, the picture just doesn't do it justice! You can see that not every part of this bouquet is full of amazing color but everything fits together so nicely. As we were told about the flowers in the arrangement, we were reminded how each week brings different flowers into season which is why the arrangements look different from week to week. Each flower has their own moment to bloom and look amazing and that is when they cut them for the arrangements. My CSA is the same way. Each week, is different with what fruit and vegetables are available to pick up and we have such a wonderful variety throughout the growing season! Some parts of the season have lesser variety than others because that is the way it is when growing produce.
The Bible uses the idea of seasons to help us understand what God is doing in us as well. Ecclesiastes 3:1,11 (NLT) says,
"For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven...Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end."Our human eyes cannot see the whole bouquet God is putting together, but every season has beauty in God's hands. In the scope of eternity, even the things that just don't seem to fit right now will fit later when we give it over to God. Here is what I know: I cannot always trust my vision because it is so limited by my humanness and pain, but I can trust God's eternal vision. What I know from His working in my past is that He can take things that make no sense whatsoever and turn them into the most magnificent beauty.
Can you trust that in His time He can take whatever season you are in and make it into something He can use?
