barren life (12.17pm)

there are places god has left barren in my life.  places where life has not grown or lived like i hoped or expected.

miscarriage.

being let go.

friendships with no next chapter.

goodbyes that could not be made into see you laters.

purity that didn’t keep its promises.

starts that will never be finished.

dreams that were not mine to keep.


but he has been gracious to grow some things nearby.

somethings… beautiful.

somethings… that bear fruit.

somethings… that provide shelter.

somethings… filled with life.

“behold, i will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it?  I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”

isaiah 43:19(NASB)
