I flourish in the grace of God and my life blossoms.
With its delicate petals arched toward the sun, a lotus plant blossoms into a gorgeous flower though its roots reside in muddy water. Like the lotus, I may be entrenched in a murky situation but, through the power of grace, I, too, can flourish. In the stillness of Silence, I cultivate serenity. I am rooted in Spirit—the foundation from which all blessings unfold. Just as the petals of the lotus flower rise above the water, I lift my vision above the horizon of any murky challenge or disquieting change. Centered in my “lotus heart,” I am confident that good will blossom from any challenge.
I lift up my eyes to the hills—from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.—Psalm 121:1-2
