Don't Give Up On Your Mums In Tulip Season!

By; Min. Angela Lee Price
"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31


We give up too easily. We want eveything quick, fast, and in a hurry. No one wants to wait anymore. We want what we want when we want it, and how we want it. However, as I stated in another post, Haste has no blessing.

It is mum season! Look around. Mums are everywhere, little ones, big ones, and very, very BIG ones. You can pray for mums, but praying to receive mums in March won't get you anywhere. You are more likely to get tulips in March than you are to get mums. That's because March is tulip season. If God gives you tulips in March, thank Him anyway even though you didn't ask for them. Don't throw a tantrum, pout or get mad with God. God is not a genie, nor cosmic bellhop, nor Santa Claus, nor is He an ATM machine! Don't grow weary! Wait on the Lord!

Renew your strength. Tulips are flowers, just like mums. Tulips will beautify your garden or home, just like mums. Renew your strength by count your blessings! Thank God for your tulips, and take care of them! He didn't have to give them to you, but He did! We serve a good God who knows what to give and just when too give it.
Claim the promise is Isaiah 40:31, and keep on praying, and praying. Pray persistently in April, in May, in June, in July, in August...keep talking with God about mums, the pretty colors, and different textures, and how you plan to water and take care of them, and where you will plant them, and how mums come back year after year bigger than before. Then on say, today, in due season, or shall I say mum season, the Holy Spirit just may quicken your spirit to run to your favorite store, where big, beautiful mums are on sale buy one get one free! In due season, God just may give you double for your trouble! Just ask Job. And, I'm a living witness of what God will do when you persist, according to His will in prayer. The red mum planted in 2010 is at least twice its original size! Isn't God good! Don't give up on your mums in tulip season!
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8:
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace;
And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time for peace.
