"God created lands full of water
so that men may live in them -
and deserts so that they may discover their souls"
Deserts - long landscapes of sand,
emptiness and loneliness.
Acute burning pain.
Dry without water
A cry that stays in the throat.
Miles and miles of nothing.
My God, where are you?
When we struggle we enter the desert and are tempted just as Jesus was. Read Jesus' answers to the temptations dangled in front of Him when He is at his most vulnerable. These are the same answers we need to focus on when we are tempted and vulnerable.
Allow the light of the world to step down into your darkness.
Bless the mess you are in and allow God to bring you out of the desert and into the Light. God has the Victory.
