“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;” Psalm 130:5
Do you see the connection between this verse and this photo?
The dead leaves represent the concealment of hope.
After waiting through the winter, the daffodils thrust through all the dead leaves and shouts,
“Hope is alive!”
The psalmist advices us to wait on hope,
For hope will spring forth from God’s word.
God illustrates His truths, time and time again, through nature. A daffodil’s appearance following a cold winter fairly shouts the truth of hope. This visual of hope serves to remind us to wait and just like the daffodils, in God’s timing, hope will spring forth.
Let’s ponder our present troubles (winter). Like the dead leaves do they conceal the signs of hope? The psalmist counsels us to wait. And as we wait, or gaze upon a simple daffodil, we will be reminded of the hope we have in God’s word.
