“All things God
works for the good of those who love him.” (Rom. )
A woman with weary countenance sat on a bench
under the old willow tree in a deserted park. Her day was ruined by a series of mistakes
that gave good reason for her to frown. It seemed that the
world was intent on dragging her
A young boy
out of breath and tired from play approached the woman. The boy
stood right before her
with his head tilted down and
said with great excitement, "Ma’am, look what I found!" In
the boy’s hand
was a flower, and what a pitiful sight, with all of its petals worn – due to lack of
rain, or not enough sunlight. The woman wanted the boy to take his dead flower and go off and play, so she faked a small smile
and then shifted away. But instead of retreating the boy sat beside the womanand placed the flower under his nose and
declared with delight, "It sure smells pretty and it's beautiful, too.
That's why I picked it and it's for you."
The woman knew she must take
the dying flower, or the boy might never leave, so she reached for the
flower, and replied, "Just what I need." But
instead of him placing the flower in her hand, the boy placed it mid-air without reason or intent.
It was then that the woman
noticed for the very first time that weed-toting boy could not see: he was blind.Suddenly, the woman’s voice began to quiver and tears came to her eyes,
as she thanked the boy for picking the very special flower. "You're welcome," the boy smiled, and then ran off to play.
The woman sat
there and wondered how the
to see a
self-pitying woman beneath an old willow tree. But through
the eyes of a blind child, at last she could see the problem was not with the world; the problem
For all of those times
had been blind to see the beautiful
side of matters.Then
held that wilted flower up to her nose and breathed in the fragrance of a beautiful
rose. She smiled as that
young boy held another weed in his hand and was about to change the life of another unsuspecting person.
God can use all circumstances to change
our life to achieve His wonderful purpose that He intends for us to live.
