Wilderness encouragement

 

Three short pieces, by way of encouragement.

#1

God did not say,
“You shall not be tempted;
you shall not be troubled;
you shall not be distressed.”
 
God did say,
“You shall not be overcome.”

In the darkest night,
in the valley of the shadow of death,
 
even there
we find shadows
bearing witness to the dawn
 
for it is in the pile of fallen leaves
that we find the acorn.

The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
 
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.

 
Isaiah 35:1-2a

 

Seen any crocusses lately?
