God's Amazing Art - Part 2 

     When the desert blooms


"The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad...
And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;
 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, even with joy and singing....

They shall see the glory of the Lord, the excellency of our God!"

Isaiah 35:1-3

God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs
And works His sovereign will.



The pain of thorns produces the purity of His holy life in us

       "...lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:7-10


Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.

His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.





Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain..

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
