I give water in the wilderness,
rivers in the desert,
Isaiah 43 v 20
Lord, I am comfortable in my desert
I found a place where I feel safe
A place where I can meet with Thee
If only I will wait.
But Thou dost send me forth
To a strange world of growing things
A place to die
In order to live.
The desert is not an end in itself and we must be prepared for change. Perhaps we need the desert experience to acquire a thirst for the living water.
