Changing Desolate Wastelands

Everything needs water. The grass is brown and crunchy underfoot. Birds are scarcely seen. I stare at the landscape this morning and pray for rain. For the life-giving rain only God can send.

Water is essential to all life. Both physical water and spiritual water! I’ve seen humans bowed under the lack of spiritual water, their souls wasting away with bitterness and pain. I’ve been there before, too. In a place where I thought I could never escape…a hopeless place.

But God changed my desolate wasteland into a beautiful place of love, peace, acceptance, and hope. So as I lift my cup of tea this morning to pray for rain to bless our land, I also pray for the spiritual outpouring of water for the souls of all those lost in despair.

I'm a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and best of all a child of God. The beautiful colors in God's world lift my spirits and give me inspiration. Every morning is a new beginning, and a blessed gift from God! I enjoy a cup of tea each morning and give thanks to my Savior for life eternal.
