Unfolding the Rosebud

The inspiration for my blog's name came from the following poem I've had in one of my journals since I was in high school. Perhaps the language is a bit cheesy, but I couldn't resist the heart and spirit of these sentiments because I know them to be so true from my own life:

Unfolding the Rosebud

It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God's design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I;
God opens this flower so sweetly,
When in my hands it fades and dies.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God's design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I'll trust Him for His leading
Each moment of every day;
I will look to Him for guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.

The pathway that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.
