Isaiah 41:17 msg


When Israel was captive in Babylon they were poor and homeless;
yet, even in their captivity God did not forsake them.

It is the same for us.
 We may not be captives of someone but most of us are held captive by something.
When we feel spiritually parched, we are thirsty for God’s grace.
He knows this and will give the grace we need to be refreshed and renewed.
He is always there for us.

Do you question why you sometimes dwell in the desert?
How has God given you grace at those dry times?

Blessings this day of grace,

  1. Hello. I’m part of a charity trying to raise money to give water to 50,000 thirsty, impoverished people.

    Please spare a few moments to read through some stats:
    • There are nearly 1 billion people in the world that don’t have clean, safe water.
    • The women and children that collect water spend approximately 40 billion hours getting it.
    • This detracts from their ability to do other work, or get an education.
    • It takes $20 to supply one of these people with a clean water supply.
    • Each dollar spent provides an economic return of $12.
    • Not least because of the drop in medical care and infant mortality.
    • Can you spare a single dollar for this campaign to bring clean water to 50,000 people?
    • That’s less than a third of the price of a cup of coffee.
    • All money goes to providing water not to admin costs or profit.

    Please see:

    If you can’t spare a single dollar, please pass this message on to others who might.


  2. I am thinking of the verse about how He makes even the deserts bloom. That is what He’s done for me. 🙂 Thank you and God bless you, Patricia!

  3. To question God why me does not help at all. “Why” is a never ending question. How is more like it. Dryness can be good for my roots to dig deeper into the well to find the fresh spring of living water. God Night, Patricia.
