Beyond the fact that almond blossom are breathtakingly beautiful, there's anothe reason that I cling to the beauty of the almond blossom.
Almond blossoms remind me that God has promised to do the impossible. That He will be faithful to complete what He has begun.
For many of us, like Jeremiah, there are things in life that seem too big. Too hard. Too much. And in the face of these things, we forget what kind of God it is that we follow.
A big God. An able God. A God who exolts in doing the too big, the too hard and the too much.
There are many times, often daily, when I forget that God has that power and ability to do what looks too big for me. Whether it's waiting patiently on His timing for marriage, providing financially for my needs and those of my family, dealing with family situations or bringing about good from what appears to be bad circumstances...in all these things, He promises to be faithful and to do it, whatever it may be.
Almond blossoms are my personal reminder that God has promised. And when God promises, it's a garantee.
Worthy of note....the staff Aaron & Moses used during the early Exodus portion of Scripture was also made out of almond wood. And so when it says that the staff of Aaron blossomed, it was these very types of blossoms that were budding on the staff.
The Lord must love almonds and almond blossoms, too.
