PICTURE PRAISE

 

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing.

Isaiah 35:1-2

 

Even now, years after I took this photo, it is an image that resonates in my mind, a reminder that God is present in our wilderness.

I thought the desert was barren, devoid of growth. But that’s simply not true. There is water in the desert. There is growth in the wilderness. And in some of the desert lands of the Arabian Peninsula, I was surprised to discover more Living Water available than I thought would be there. I thought I’d be bringing it in. But the truth was, it was already there.
