En vacker dikt

Av Stig Olsson - 26 maj 2010 10:30

Idag börjar jag mitt bloggande med att klippa in en underbart vacker text som jag fått från min älskade moster i Kanada... den är både vacker och manar till eftertanke, men positiv sådan :)

    
 

[]
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 impossible
this 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."

[]
Please share this poem
with a friend
if you enjoyed
being reminded
to let go
and let God
unfold your life.

I veckan pratade jag med en journalist om min livssituation igen. Jag pratade om att jag sitter i husarrest en dag i veckan, att jag inte längre kan arbeta som skådespelare och att jag dessutom inte längre kan jobba heltid. Jag pratade om att hela mi...

Att få vänta timme efter timme på sjukvård när man söker på akuten har svensken sensationellt stor förståelse för. Den foglige svensken tror att skälen är läkarbrist eller att personalen ar för mycket att göra. Alla dessa ursäker är bluff. Det handla...
