“He turns a wilderness into pools of
And dry land into watersprings,
There He makes the hungry dwell,
That they may establish a city for
And sow fields and plant vineyards,
That they may yield a fruitful
harvest.” Psalm 107:35-37
The wilderness and desert are extreme habitats.
Lord, I desire to not flee the extreme places of my life, but trust You to make them into something of beauty and delight. And here’s a simple poem . . .
The wilderness is dangerous
the desert way too harsh
out of my element
I quickly ask to depart
but You delight and desire
to turn what’s hard into tools
that uncover well springs
and bring forth fruit beside pools.
