An Unforgiving Place

The mountainous desert is a very unforgiving place. And yet there is beauty still.
The life here grows harshly daring you to test it’s thorns.
We trek through proclaiming beauty and hardness.
There is growing.
God is here.
In the unforgiving place. Still.
In all of our unforgiving places…God is here.
Rain fell in hesitant drops today.
We were inside what is called a pour off.
Perhaps you are in an unforgiving place in your life and heart.
Remember there is growing to do…even here.
Also, God is with you. With us.
And…
…let the rain pour down. See the beauty. Give thanks for the hardness. Let forgiveness pour off and wash.
Thank You God for the forgiveness that You give so freely. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

  1. “Give thanks for the hardness. Let forgiveness pour off and wash.” Might we come to the place of deliberate thanksgiving in all times – even hard ones. And might be find ourselves closer the One who forgives and washes us clean. Thank you for sharing these thoughts!
