Hi, friends! I'm super excited to share today's word with you. It was a little
interesting come up with an applicable word for X, but I found one, and I don't
know about you, but it really speaks to where I am right now with my recent
health issues and some other trials I'm facing. It's a word that holds so much
encouragement, I feel God whispering it to my soul as I type this out.
So, without further ado, x is for xerach! Yes, it's a word. A wonderful word
full of deep meaning.
Xerach is: Plant succession starting on bare ground or rock (an empty place or a
hard surface) and culminating in a mature climax forest.
It is mature forest growing from the humblest of beginnings.
A lone xerach flower blooming in the desert is a far mightier display of God's
might than a meadow full of them. If He's planted you in a dry place, trust that
He'll bring you to bloom.
God says in His Word:
If you are struggling to grow in a dry, hard place, trust that God is at work
and when you mature into full bloom, you will be a glorious reflection of Him to

FBI agent Declan Grey is in the chase of his life--but isn't sure exactly
what he's chasing after. Threatened by a terrorist that "the wrath is coming,"
Grey fears something horrible is about to be unleashed on American soil. When
his investigation leads him to a closed immigrant community, he turns to Tanner
Shaw to help him. She's sought justice for refugees and the hurting around the
world, and if there's anyone who can help him, it's Tanner.
Tanner Shaw has joined the FBI as a crisis counselor . . . meaning she now
has more opportunity to butt heads with Declan. But that tension also includes a
spark she can't deny, and she's pretty sure Declan feels the same. But before
anything can develop between them, they discover evidence of a terror cell--and
soon are in a race against the clock to stop the coming "wrath" that could cost
thousands their lives.
