If I could make plum blossoms from scratch, I would. But, I can't. I can plant a seed and water it. I can take a photo, or paint a picture. But I can't make something out of nothing. Except maybe when my husband and I are having a disagreement.
God can make something out of nothing literally. He made the whole universe : ) He made us. There's no way I can do enough to save my own soul. Although it is easy to think doing a good thing should give me a little boost up in the Heavens. It's not like that. We're not in a competition. We all win by having faith in Jesus and accepting His gift, even when we feel like nothing. The Bible and prayer help us grow strong and bloom. And as the rain helps the flowers grow, trouble can help me grow when I don't give up.
So cool God designed so many different flowers, and different people too. Wouldn't it be boring if we all looked and acted the same? He has quite an imagination. The ultimate Creator, our Savior.
