The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the Lord,
the splendor of our God.
Isiah 35:1-2 (NIV)
Right now, we might not be where we wanted to be. We might be experiencing some problems and discomfort in our lives. And everything seems so hard. But with the help of a force far greater than our own strength such that of God’s, combined with our own action with determination to succeed, we’ll eventually get to where we wanted to be. It is because there is a price for success whatever our chosen field might be. It is definitely not easy. I’ll never learn how to ride a bike if all I ever think about is the chances of falling down and the increasing number of bruises. I had to learn it on my own, they all were kind enough to just tease me because I didn’t know something so easy and that they were too busy to teach me. But I can laugh at them now while I’m riding a bike! Woooot! LOL.
The bottom line is, problems are there to teach us, nurture us and strengthen us. It is through problems that we learn to value and appreciate the great things in life that we sometimes take for granted. All we have to do is work on overcoming it. And with your strength, support from love ones, and faith in the Lord, everything can be possible. We can bloom with full glory.
Have a blessed Sunday! 😀
