It's the time for blossoming!

Tuesday, January 22, 2008 (4:27 am)

Isaiah 35:1-2 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: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.

One thing I absolutely love about Israel is that fruit grows everywhere in abundance. Delicious citrus fruit, mango, pomegranate, grapes, cactus fruit, avocado — and much much more! It's common to see people people pick and eat it as they walk by. And it doesn't taste like your average western fruit either. It seems to be especially sweet. It must be because God has blessed the land it's grown upon!

Today marks the Jewish holiday of Tu B' Shvat and the beginning of the new year for trees. It is customary to plant trees and partake of the fruits of the Land to commemorate the occasion. God has declared that fruit shall blossom from the desert of our dry land here in Israel and boy, has it ever!

I love this passage. It reminds me that even the dry desert areas in our lives can come to life! The Lord declares that He will restore the years the locusts have eaten! No matter how desolate we've been, this is the time to blossom!

Our lives are meant to flourish in the Lord! Let's ask Him to touch us in a special way this season. May we spring to life and blossom abundantly. May that which was once dead spring to life and may everyone around us may see the evidence of the glory of God!

    I am so blessed today..
    I woke up thinking about being "older" and thinking about how the Lord still bothers with teaching me the wonder of His ways..
    and wondering why because I am to old to really benefit as a young person would…
    Apparently , in His eyes there is still a time to blossom in my life..

    He will restore the YEARS the locusts have eaten!

    With that verse there have obviously been YEARS before the restoration..
    God continues to bring forth blossoms and fruit in our lives for His good purpose..
    Whatever that marvelous purpose it may be…Praise God…
