Letters to His Roses

Journey through the Desert

Journey through the Desert

Dear Roses,

My journey through the desert of divorce was long, three years long, and dangerous, and exhausting but the Bridegroom never left me to perish from dehydration.
He sustained me with His Living Water. He is a gentle and wise Lord and knows my heart in all its depths and shadows.
Just as heavy rain on dry land runs off or evaporates before the thirsty ground can absorb it, a parched and scorched heart cannot take in a torrent of Love. And so my Gentle Bridegroom came at first as the dew fall – imperceptible, gentle, and silent. He soothed my thirsty heart just enough to sustain me and create a longing for more… more of His refreshment.
As I recognized that what I thirsted for, what refreshed my weary heart, and what alone would keep me alive in the desert, was Christ and only Christ, I prayed, sobbed, and begged for more of His Living Water.
And always He was there, waiting, to pour Himself upon me. My Bridegroom, and He alone, knows the needs of my heart and so He provided water in the desert as the dew fall, the slow steady rain, the short burst of a summer storm, the misty fog of early morning, the heavy downfall… And when what I needed was a time of clouds with no rain so that my heart might deeply soak in and absorb the puddles of His Love, He stopped the rain for just long enough.
Jesus led me out of my Egypt and with every step, every touch of His feet upon the sand of my desert heart, a stream of Living Water appeared and life blossomed.
If you are thirsting in your own desert or your heart is a desert barren of hope, Christ your Bridegroom is calling to you…

“I am with you here in this place of dryness and thirsting. Reach for Me, call out to Me, open yourself to Me. I desire to fill you with Living Water, to quench your thirst, and to love you into full bloom.

If you are thirsting in your own desert or your heart is a desert barren of hope, Christ your Bridegroom is calling to you… “I am with you here in this place of dryness and thirsting. Reach for Me, call out to Me, open yourself to Me. I desire to fill you with Living Water, to quench your thirst, and to love you into full bloom.”

I offer my prayers and my hand to hold as you step into the desert with our Bridegroom. He has promised to speak tenderly to your heart and lead you to a land flowing with milk and honey. Be not afraid to trust in His faithful Love.

Together in His Heart,

Laura 🌹
