A rose must remain with the sun and the rain or its lovely promise won't come true. - Ray Evans

I'm not a flower type of gal but, when it comes to roses, I can't help but fall for them (especially red roses). They are delicate, with their lovely soft pebbles yet strong, with their thorn filled stem. Even though roses are beautiful and strong flowers they are completely hopeless without sun and water.

A rose depends on the sun and rain, it’s what keeps it alive and well. If it’s not receiving sun nor water it'll wither and die, and its promise of becoming this beautiful strong rose won't come to pass. The same with a person walking in faith. We must remain with the Father and Son or else our promise, the plans The Lord has for us, won't come to pass.

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. -Psalm 37:5 (ESV)

If we become distracted or if our passion and desire for the Lord starts to deem, it could result in a numerous amount of things. We could start departing from the Lord or even fall back into our old destructive ways of the world. Which could lead to devastating roads; such as death, imprisonment, suicide and so much more. This is why our dependency needs to come from The Lord, the Creator of all things because without Him we would be withering away somewhere without any hope.
