We enter the wilderness saying “But….but”;
We emerge from the wilderness saying “But God”
The process of our journey is like this. When we are young, we have every excuse in the book as to why we haven’t accomplished or done what we think we ought to have done, but after so many years of trying to become something, and then trying to un-become it, we just learn to BE and accept who we are in the Lord.
“The people who survived the sword
Found grace in the wilderness—
Israel, when I went to give him rest.” Jeremiah 31:2
