A desert wasteland with no friendly oasis in sight
Nothing on the horizon to lift your spirits
Just emptiness and lack and utter thirst
And crying out to God for help
As you wander in a desolate place of sadness?
But then you showed up to a new day to find it filled
With soul renewing worship and the sweet joy of friendship
A complete perspective shift to hope and new life
And all at once you find crocuses blooming in the wilderness
Out of nowhere—a garden
And you wonder how God could have ushered in such goodness?
