A way in the wilderness

flower in desert

This desert road seems endless, Lord
but in Your mercy You reminded me
“I will make you a way in the wilderness,
a river in the desert.”

I was sitting in the veld
Dry, arid, filled with rocks,
sun beating down and
You said
“See how I make the desert bloom”.
And I looked up and saw …
a flower growing out of a rock,
little green plants and
lizards scuttling
Pink winged insects
and a thorn rimmed cactus
A vivid orange butterfly
Eagles circling in the sky.
A variety of textures, colours and sounds
Paradise unlocked for me
Just by seeing differently!

Lord, help me to
To see past helplessness and despair
and see instead Your world, Your life
Your kingdom, Your realm
Eternity.
