“On the shoreline we’re waiting & waiting for that same old sea to part, meanwhile God’s out paving a new way, creating rivers in the desert.” Melissa Moore
I love the reminder in this quote of how we think God has a particular path planned for our lives but then we discover He’s creating an entirely different path, a better path, one we never even considered or thought possible.
Through desert paths, our senses are heightened; we embrace the goodness and the gift of the river.
We recognize our need for satisfying, thirst quenching life.
Lord lead us to this river.
“The poor and the needy seek water, but there is none;
their tongues are parched with thirst.
I will answer them.
I am the Lord, the God of Israel. I will not abandon them.
I will open rivers on the barren heights,
and springs in the middle of the plains.
I will turn the desert into a pool
and dry land into springs.” Isaiah 41: 18-18
