The lotus is a flower that is rooted at the bottom of miry water. It shows great determination as it forces its way up through the darkness until it finally emerges into the sunlight and blooms as a beautiful flower.
The lotus flower becomes a symbol of perseverance, overcoming, and survival as the miry water is often related to a dark trial in life. Encouragement comes in the hope that at the end, a person will be met with the joy of the sunshine and will bloom as the beautiful lotus flower.
