A Weekend Of Breaking Through

There is one plant that has thrived despite our current drought. My hen and chicks plant has been buried in the weeds for a while without water, much to my personal shame. But hidden among the weeds and grass, a little miracle was taking place.

When I started to clean out the bed, I was amazed to see that it was actually thriving, not just surviving. It's twice as big as it was when I got it, and one of the hens has sprouted a giant blooming flower. It didn't matter the conditions around it - it had a mission!

And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. Isaiah 58:11

Make this a weekend of breaking through. No matter what's happening in your circumstances or how you "feel" during these two days, follow the example of my plant and break through it all. Pray for God's strength to push aside the weeds and bloom. Be obedient to His call on your life and let your colors show in a sea of green leaves.

The Lord is satisfying you, even in the drought of a wilderness, and He's prepared to give a spring of water for your soul. Enjoy a special weekend with Him in the watered garden He has delighted in giving you.
