How Long in the Wilderness?

Often we find ourselves in the wilderness.
Often enough that I find myself writing abut this,
Lost, uncertain, fearful, confused, alone.
An otherwise focused mind in a state of chaos.
Forced to choose,
 make a change, seek guidance, trust the unseen God.
Stay in the place you find yourself currently planted.
A road that takes us nowhere.
More of the same.

What puts us there?
Death, a troubled relationship, finances, the unknowns of tomorrow.
Worried of a tomorrow that hasn't even arrived?
Often so focused on the issue we feel unable to focus on anything else.

I've said this before,
It's in the wilderness, we learn to trust,  we are forever being refined.
It's in the chaos and uncertainty and fear that we should be asking God 
to reveal what it is we are to learn from time spent on this piece of property call the 

Placing our trust and faith in God can fill up our days.
 the day remains full of the issue at hand,
 that which brought us into the wilderness.
If its the latter,  it in fact becomes our master.

Which are you choosing?
There is always a choice..........
Regardless of your choice,
one choice keeps the other one out?

God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to Him.
Andrew Murray

Choosing to trust in an unseen God. 
A place that pours out peace....
this is what echos from my heart today.


  1. Ah, trust! So difficult to achieve, yet so wonderfully peace giving when you accept that you cannot change things, but He can! Thinking of you!

  2. Choosing to trust in an unseen God and so blessed to be able to do it! Just what I needed to hear.

  3. All I can say is"Amen"! The enemy loves to see us confused and defeated, I was just reading that the Greek word for devil means "to split". That is just what he wants to do...split or separate us from God and His love and joy and peace. That's when we tell him..."greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world...get thee behind me satan!

  4. Beautifully written, Debi. And, of course my choice is believing in God.

    Have a blessed day, sweet lady.


  5. Your heart echos my heart today. From my readings lately, I find that the wilderness is a crucial growing area in God's economy. Afterall, he grew Moses up to be a leader, in his forty years of desert life.
    Thank you for sharing your heart in blogland. It always blesses me.

  6. I came across your blog today for the first time and found this, which I desperately needed to read . . I am printing it out and putting it in my Bible. I hope you come back soon.
