May and May flowers, especially the ones in these pics have a very special place in my heart.
In May, 32 years ago as a wee girl of just 8 years of age, I was returning home from school by myself. The walk home was down a quarter of a mile stretch of laneway which was just beginning to bloom with spring flowers. I loved to gather some to take home to my mother and that's just what I did that sunny afternoon. I really love bluebells and primroses but then my eye fell on these delicate little white flowers and I decided to add some to my bouquet.
As I picked one from the hedge my conscience was instantly pricked. At that moment I felt my guilt as a sinner before God. The purity and whiteness of that simple little flower convicted me of my sin and the wickedness of my heart in the sight of God, who 'is of purer eyes than to behold iniquity'.
In simple child-like faith I prayed to God to save me from my sin and wash my heart clean and pure like the little white flowers. Even as an eight year old, I knew then why Jesus had shed His blood on the Cross of Calvary - it was for my salvation! Praise His name He came into my heart and life that instant and saved me as He says, 'Call upon the name of the LORD and thou shalt be saved.'
So I lift up my heart in thankfulness to God for saving me and keeping me from that day.
I love the Lord and want to serve Him day and daily for His mercy to me.
If you have never repented of your sin, you can do so right now and call upon the Lord to forgive you and He promises never to turn any away. He will save you now and for eternity!
There is no greater blessing in life than to be in a right relationship with God.
Trust Him today
If you do know the Lord, I'd love to know how you were saved.
