Are You A Weed-Flower?
Look at Niagra Falls. It's beautiful. Look at these flowers. They're beautiful. But not everything is beautiful.
Now, tell me. Which one holds DARK secrets? The beautiful flowers or the beautiful water? Can you tell me???
You guessed it--- it's Niagra Falls. It's so beautiful, but just look at it deeply. You could take one more step towards it and fall in. (if you're dumb enough, or if you're blind.) You could easily drown in a second or two. In fact, many people have probably died aleady.
But a sweet little flower--- what harm could it do????? None! Maybe if you have allergies, but otherwise, no harm can be done. It's just beautiful.
Now, look at yourself. Are you a weed or are you a flower? And give yourself a straight answer. No 'ifs', 'ands' or 'buts'.
Just because you think you're a flower doesn't mean you ARE a flower. Is a rose a flower? Yes, no, maybe so??? Here's a straight-forward answer with no 'ifs', 'ands' or 'buts'.
They are weeds. Believe it or not, roses ARE weeds, and the thorns prove it. Didn't think so? Or did you already know? Either way, they look beautiful. But they hold some harsh secrets.
Not only do they prick fingers, but how could they make it into anyone's yard when they're WEEDS?! Because they're weedflowers. They're weeds, but everyone loves them, people have them on a date, at the prom, at a wedding, and the roses get away with it. But the secrets ARE revealed.
Just as you just found out the true identity of roses, soon, we shall all find out your sins. You can't hide it forever. But there's one thing you can do:
Pray for forgiveness. Once you do, in just a simple prayer of your own words, you'll become a flower.
We're all beautiful weeds and rushing Niagra Falls, but we can have a new beginning.
