…He will comfort all her waste places… Isaiah 51:3
Do you have any waste places? Places that are dry and desolate? In the stillness of the hour when you are alone with your thoughts, is there a place of disappointment, confusion, or fear that plagues you? It could be a place of strong emotion held captive by a multitude of difficult circumstances. Or maybe deep down you see yourself as a waste place, so dry and cracked by life’s scorching heat that there is nothing that will moisten to the depth of your pain. Beloved, you are not wasted. Those places that have been laid waste in your life are in need of comfort. They are in need of God’s gentle watering, His gentle mending, and His gentle tending. Do not pray for the dryness to be instantly removed, but rather pray that it be soothed by the Comforter and transformed into a nourishing spring that will overflow into the lives of those around you.
Open your desert up to the Savior,
Invite Him to walk with you through, hand in hand.
The path under foot may be hard yet awhile,
But your wilderness laid waste will become His Eden again!
Sanctify the Soul, 180 Days of Devotions and Poetry to Sanctify the Soul -Laura K Ford
...And her wilderness He will make like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and sound of melody.
