We daily walk through the wilderness of life.
We are tested at every turn – surrounded by danger and fear –
Swallowed up by loneliness – devoured by doubt.
We are on a pilgrimage towards our final destination.
Days are numbered, time is running out. Are we ready?
The path is filled with unknowns.
Our minds refuse to grasp the simplicity of the trek.
We try to manage things on our own.
He won’t let us walk alone.
He walks beside us and when things get too tough He carries us.
He clears the weeds, the sand burrs, the entanglements that choke the life from us.
He provides our physical and spiritual bread. He quenches our parched throats.
He carries our burdens.
He lifts us out of the pit and renews our spirit.
He died and rose again so we will never die.
