Are you ready for a Super Bloom?

Have you ever been to Death Valley? No, not Tiger Stadium.

Death Valley, the desert in California, is the hottest, driest, and lowest National Park. While these conditions prevent all but a scattering of wildflowers, something happened in 2016 which triggered what is known as a Super Bloom.

Unusually heavy rainfall caused fields of pink, purple, yellow, and white wildflowers to blanket the desert. One park ranger said that Death Valley wasn’t dead, it was dormant. The seeds were always there; they just needed water. There was a Super Bloom in 2017 and 2019, and recent conditions have people expecting one this year.

Are you ready for a Super Bloom? What seeds are buried deep within you just waiting for the right conditions to burst forth? Is it a business, a new job, or a ministry? What about a painting, a book, or a song?

I believe that as you ask God to give you clear direction, and trust Him to open and close appropriate doors, amazing things will burst forth in your life.

But what about the people around you? They are likely harboring their own visions and dreams. Maybe a few kind words of encouragement will go a long way to water those seeds in someone else.

Although Park Ranger Alan Van Valkenburn was referring to a Super Bloom when he said the following, I’m applying his words to us. “There are so many seeds out there just waiting to sprout, just waiting to grow. When you get the perfect conditions… those seeds could all sprout at once.”
