Bloom Part 3: Spring Crocus

As I read through Isaiah 35:1-10, (follow the link to read it) I saw the parallels between my own parched heart and the desert wilderness.  The verse says, "the desert 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." I have been dry, feeling like a wilderness. Parched. Feeling like a desert, that nothing good could grow or come forth.  Yet again, the Lord is showing me that even in that place he can make new life burst forth.  He can make it bloom. 

The verse mentions a crocus, so I looked it up.  Some versions say lily, some say rose but many say crocus.  A crocus is a flower that is super versatile. It can grow pretty much anywhere.  It usually is the first flower to burst forth in spring and sometimes even comes up while there is still snow on the ground.  It's a reminder that spring is indeed coming.  It may seem like winter, like a desert, but spring is just around the corn…
