This isn’t something, I’ve ever really stumbled upon as I’ve browsed through my favorite tea store. The cursive descriptions of the fresh teas contained within glass jars, haven’t donned the term “pink”,yet for me, to be served a cup of hot pink tea sounds refreshing and calming. The closest thing that I’ve come to this concept would be Tazo Tea’s “Rest” which has dried rose buds in it and while it may not advertise “pink”, the color of this perfection is rosy in color.
So all this to say, just because something isn’t common place or a regular occurrence in our lives doesn’t mean it can’t exist in one form or another. Just because we may not experience love from our parents or significant other, doesn’t mean that love isn’t out there. Just because we have had obstacles and hurdles knock us down and off our path, doesn’t mean that hope cannot be found. It’s easy to be jaded and to write off any happiness, fulfillment or peace in our lives because many of us may have experiences that place us on guard, afraid to trust and unable to believe. But we must.
God is love and he wants to provide for us in ways that go beyond our wildest imaginations. God desires for us to feel and find love which first and foremost comes from Him, then from others. God wants us to be healthy and whole and not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well. This may feel out of our grasp and beyond our realm of thinking, but it’s real and available. In Psalm 37:4, it reads, “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” What God is saying is, seek him first, don’t rely on those around you, hobbies, jobs, finances etc to bring you happiness or joy, but understand it can only come from him. Then, by putting him first, the desires of our heart will come to pass because these desires will emulate God’s heart, and the work that he wants to do in the lives of others through us.
You are a true masterpiece. Don’t ever believe the lie that you are not and know that unlike pink tea leaves, hope, love, faith, peace and joy are yours, all you have to do is reach out and allow God to pour it all into your life!
