I bought a rose bush for my wife, Maryellen, for our anniversary in May, and yesterday (Sunday, November 5, 2018), she picked these because they’re so beautiful to her (me too).
When I bought it, I had no idea that this rose bush would yield more roses than any bush that I can remember.
The LORD gave me a name for this group of roses, “The November Rose“.
It signifies the beauty it sustains even in the seasons of change.
We all are being changed in every season. We are still being transformed no matter how we look on the outside, no matter how we try to hide ourselves from the reality of it over time.
But there is a grand beauty that The LORD is working within you that He sees.
That even those desert times that you and I may go through, the desert will blossom as the rose and the rose that represents the beauty of His working in you, is revealing who you really are in The LORD.
He is putting you forth as His own possession. He is revealing His splendor in you.
He is showing the whole world how wonderfully He has made you. He is making your desert to blossom as the rose, and placing you in a place of honor, and high esteem for the whole world to see.
It is in your humility where you will find riches, honor, and life.
Humble yourself in the sight of The LORD, and He will lift you up.
There is great grace ahead of you that is being prepared for you by the King.
The Love of the King is lifting you up.
“And I, The LORD, have kindled it. It will not be quenched.”
