The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
Some days feel like deserts don't they? Dry and parched with no cooling breezes or refreshing water to soothe.
But actually there is life that springs forth in deserts. Solitary though deserts may be, animals live there and even blossoms burst forth on prickly cacti.
Isaiah 35:1 reminds us that even in the most solitary wilderness places there can be rejoicing and blossoms like roses. Something for us to think about when frustration and feelings of loneliness or despair fill our days. Blooms can burst forth where we least expect them.
May we all feel blessed by God's blessings today
