Beauty in the Desert…


It’s been a little while since I’ve updated the blog. I only update when I feel as though I’ve heard something from the Lord, and not just for the sake of keeping a schedule.

The last couple weeks have been a bit of a spiritual desert for me personally. Haven’t been hearing much… oh, my morning devotions are good, the teaching at church is excellent and fellowship has been great… but I just haven’t been “hearing” anything special.

This morning, Irene and I were looking for some plants for our home. Texas is a state that is made up of a lot of desert and I noticed that as we were searching for plants, that there could be and is in fact beauty in the desert and I took this photograph.

I took this photo because God was reminding me of His faithfulness at this dry time in my life. In our relocation to Texas from Washington- He has led us to a beautiful church fellowship. He has directed us into a wonderful bible study group in Isaiah. He has allowed Irene and I the blessing of being with our granddaughter for hours a day while our son and daughter-in-law are at work. And there are many more gifts from the Father that I could mention- these are but a few. The point is- even when things seem dry in our lives… God is working. He is faithful. His love is never ending. Amen. I needed to be reminded of that.

Lamentations 3:22-23…The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
