Beating the Heat!


 

Isaiah 35:1-2 The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus,  it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy

While her weaker cousins are wilting or just plain cashing in their blooms till next year this Salvia sylvestris is only beginning to show her true colors. KIMG0187

“When the going gets tough the tough get going”  Knute Rockne

With a touch of both toughness and beauty this flower gives her all to ensure that the gardening season isn’t over. God created both her delicate flowers and tough roots so that on the hottest summer days she will stand proud and strong. If you are facing some wilting heat in your life maybe the sister Salvia can encourage you to stay strong. The same God who understands how to beat the summer heat in the garden knows how to help us beat the heat in the desert places of our lives!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
