There will be a change

"Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days.
    The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.
Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers
    and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon,
    as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon.
There the Lord will display his glory,
    the splendor of our God.
With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands,
    and encourage those who have weak knees.
Say to those with fearful hearts,
    “Be strong, and do not fear,
for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.
    He is coming to save you.” - Isaiah 35:1-4

These words of Hope from Isaiah remind me that even when things seem bleak, God can turn things around. The wastelands will blossom once more and the wilderness will come to Life.

Hope onto that promise this week.
Be strong and do not be afraid.

Living in Grace
