A Flower For His Glory

Like a seed planted in the ground
Nothing but darkeness surrounds.
There it dies but soon comes to life
It battles it's way up to the light.

The journey seems so very long
Feeling lonely but never alone.
It takes root becoming strong
Waiting seems so prolonged.

Until finally it sees some light
Through the soil not very bright.
Hope bursts forth with anticipation
No more darkness, no more waiting.

In the darkness God was creating
A flower for his glory one so elating.
Beauty for the world to enjoy and see
A creation giving praises unto thee

Sometimes it's spending time in the darkness that we can truly appreciate the light. I find that it is in my darkest moments when my creativity comes alive to write of hope.
