For the LORD shall comfort Zion: He will comfort all her
waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden,
and her desert like the garden of the LORD;
joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving,
and the voice of melody. Isaiah 51 v 3
Just as the Lord restores vigour and vitality to the cold
winter landscape, He restores vigour and vitality to my being.
In Him, all I have endured, all my struggles and my challenges
have served as seeds from which the spring flowers
of His love and beauty blossom in my life.
Each time I endure my difficulties with Him, turn to Him,
call on Him, trust in Him and allow Him to minister gently
and lovingly to me, more of His abundant life is released.
Without a need would I, so consistently, have called on Him ?
Once I have drawn close and have tasted the beauty
of His presence, I will choose to stay with Him because
now I know a bond of love
with the Lamb of God who is the King of Love.
