Lily of the Valley

Watercolor Painting | Lily of the Valley: I’ve been listening to Kari Kobe’s new song “Your Nature” on repeat. It is a salve to my soul. A lovely exhale summarizing the last ten years of painful deconstruction and rebirth. The beauty of it inspires me.

“You bring life to the barren places

Light to the darkest spaces

You bring joy to the broken hearted

Hope to the ones who’ve lost it

You bring peace to the war inside us

Speak and all fear is silenced

There is no desert that your streams can’t run to

There are no ruins that your love won’t make new

You tell the wasteland that it will bloom again

Cause it’s your nature

You will restore the years that shame has stolen

You keep the promises that you have spoken

I know the wasteland will be whole again

Cause it’s your nature.

Sing out o barren woman

Sing out o broken man

Stretch out your hands believing this is your promised land

Break out of disappointment

Break out of hopelessness

Stretch out your hands believing this is your promised land”

~ Your Nature by Kari Jobe
