These lovely tulips caught my eye recently. With vibrantly colored petals that look like flames, I thought they were perfect for a friend going through difficult times.
I hope these fiery blooms will remind her that even when the flames lap about us, God is with us. Passages like Isaiah 43:2-3 remind us of His abiding presence: "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior ... ."
My friend's inspiring strength and compassion demonstrate that Christians can bloom even in the heat of the flame.
