When you think of Death Valley, what do you think of? Beautiful, blooming flowers, right? Probably not, but on occasion, there is an ecological event that happens called a SUPERBLOOM. When this occurs, it is often after many years of a very specific amount of rainfall especially in the fall and winter months. The environment is right for some of the most lovely wildflowers you could imagine. The seeds were buried in the ground, but the conditions were not right for growth into what they were meant to become. They had to wait for the right time to show their beauty.
We’ve all come through a pretty significant amount of rainfall. It looks different for all of us. It feels a bit different for all of us, but I know we are all feeling worse for the wear right now. That being said, the Death Valley SUPERBLOOM is a real thing and it can be in your life too. God puts certain ideas and dreams (seeds) in our hearts sometimes years before they become reality. The desert times were here for sure, and the rain has come. Be ready for the blooming to begin, but remember that as Pastor Vicky spoke about, we will need to do the work that is necessary to make this happen. God wants to give us the desires of our hearts. He wants to bless us with good things and He does not deposit things in our hearts without wanting to give it to us. He wants us to partner with Him in this.
When you feel like you’re in a desert space and you don’t think that the beautiful things you envision for your life can be a reality, remember the superbloom that comes after the conditions of dryness and even rain. It will be worth it to be patient for God has some lovely things in store- Meghan
