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.
