“Do not fear, you wild beasts: You will eat again, for the desert pastures are green again! And so will we: the trees bear their fruit; the fig trees and the vines produce their bounty once again.” (Joel 2: 22, The Voice Translation)
This verse glows with a promise for each of us. The barrenness we may feel at times, the lack or loss that seems to engulf us, is not our fate. The desert of our thought and experience will bloom again.
For God is with us. His grace is boundless and ready. What seems to be destruction at times may actually be renewal, that necessary “slash and burn” where the old and unfruitful is cleared away so that new life can grow and flourish.
God’s Love and His infinite Life is our assurance. And this means we can calm our fear and that of others, knowing God’s good intention for us is that we are fed, nurtured, given all that is needed for us to grow and be happy, to be what He made us to be. God’s promise is that we not only survive the wilderness times, but emerge from them into even greater productivity, inspiration, and bounteous goodness to express and to share!
