God’s Rosebud

God’s Rosebud  

A new minister was walking with an older, more seasoned  minister in the garden one day. Feeling a bit insecure about  what God had for him to do, he was asking the older preacher for some advice.
The older preacher walked  up to a rosebush and handed the young preacher a rosebud and told him to open  it without tearing off any petals.

The young preacher looked in disbelief at the older preacher and was trying to figure out what a rosebud could possibly have to do with his wanting to know the will of God for his life  and ministry. 

But because of his great respect for the older preacher, he proceeded to try to unfold the rose, while keeping every petal  intact.

It wasn’t long before he realized how impossiblethis was to  do. 

Noticing the younger preacher’s inability to unfold the rosebud without tearing it, the older preacher began to recite the following  poem… 

“It is only a tiny rosebud, 
A flower of God’s  design; 
But I cannot unfold the  petals 
With these clumsy hands of  mine.” 

“The secret of unfolding flowers 
Is not known to such as  I. 
GOD opens this flower so easily, 
But in my hands they  die.” 

“If I cannot unfold a rosebud, 
This flower of God’s design, 
Then how can I have the wisdom 
To unfold this life of mine?”

“So I’ll trust in God for leading 
Each moment of my day. 
I  will look to God for guidance 
In each step of the way.” 

“The path  that lies before me, 
Only my Lord  knows. 
I’ll trust God to unfold the moments, 
Just as He unfolds the  rose.”
