Flowers Were Meant to Bloom


Danielle Strickland shares a song about a girl named Flower. Her story will encourage you to never doubt the saving power of Jesus!

I had a great call from a friend today. She was updating me on how God was blessing her life and it made me remember when we met. It’s a long and complicated story really – needless to say we first met behind a dumpster in an alley in the downtown east-side of Vancouver. Her street name was Flower. It took her half an hour to find a vein that wasn’t collapsed to inject her drugs in. Now, five years later – she’s a different person. Completely different. Clean, free, learning, growing – in Christian community – using her gifts for God and others. She is a miracle. She prays and worships like no-one! I love to watch her dance… and she’s pretty crafty with a worship flag!

God gave me a song for her the first day we met – and He reminded me of it today- I’m pleased to say, with experience – it’s true. Never doubt the saving power of Jesus. He saves. I’m so blessed to know Him and her!


Flowers were meant to bloom
You will not break a reed that’s bruised
Beauty for ashes
Glory for shame
We’re trading our sorrows again
Flowers were meant to bloom
The Spirit is upon me, with good news
Freedom for captives
Sight for the blind
It’s time for your favour again
Give us, holy passion
Give us, burning desire
Give us, zeal for your kingdom
Give us, Pentecostal fire
Make us, mighty warriors
Make us, lambs who roar
Make us, warriors of righteousness
Make us, a well-watered garden
Make us, living streams
Make us, oaks of righteousness
Your Kingdom come, your will be done
on earth as it is in Heaven. (reference Isaiah 61)
