Brought Back To Life
by Sonia Brown

 “The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)

            My husband Tom wanted to express his love towards me so he gave me some colorful spring flowers. They were beautiful tulips. A gorgeous array of God’s creation. What a surprise! Like most wives I gave him a kiss and immediately took the fresh tulips and put them in a vase with some water. I then displayed them on our table and left them for the rest of our family to enjoy.

            Two days later I noticed they looked dead. The tulips were folded over, had floppy leaves, and without life. I was overcome with disappointment and grief. I could not get over the fact that they could quickly die after two days. I called my husband to take a look at them to assure that they were in fact dead. Maybe he knew something about them that I didn’t.

            Tom and I agreed they were indeed dead. Ready to throw them out I embarrassedly discovered they did not have any water. I felt so foolish and guilty knowing it was because of me that they were in this condition.  So quickly I filled the vase with water in hopes that they would come back to life. I was determined to give them one more chance. And to my amazement within two hours they were brand new. They looked vibrant and cheery. They were renewed, regenerated, and restored.

            I learned a valuable lesson that sunny day. God is very patient. He is slow to anger. He wants everyone to enjoy the abundant life He has provided. Even when someone looks dead God sees life.  I know some people in my church that I have been frustrated with in their Christian walk and God reminds me not to give up on them. He has never given up on me.

            Sometimes we want to give up on ourselves but God says there is still potential. He sees something out of nothing. He sees success when there is failure. He sees life when there is death.  

            As I was ready to throw those tulips out some of you are ready to throw your future out. God is saying “Wait! Let me have a chance to work at it.” All God wants you to do is speak the Word of God over your situation. His word is like water to thirsty soul.
