I remember the day very clear. It was one of the worst days of work at this specific place. I walked outside to take a deep breath and just let the tears roll down my cheeks. The sun was shining that morning and I saw this beautiful flower and others around popping out of the ground. Could it be? It was fall not spring. Yet there were at least 10 purple flowers bursting forth that fall morning giving me hope that everything would be okay.
And everything did turn out because God was in control and had a plan that was being worked out. Every time I see this flower on my phone, I am reminded that God sees me. He hears my cries, and He comforts me. Doesn't matter that everything around me falls apart sometimes. There is always something new, bursting with beauty as I wait upon the Lord for strength and direction.
His hug from heaven that day was this little flower of hope. Hope for a brighter tomorrow. Hope that I could trust in His strength. Hope in His plan. Hope that He was and is and always will be by my side leading me down His way.
What hug from heaven has God given you and reminded you of lately?
