It is hard to believe we have journeyed through the wilderness for almost four months and I have only blogged through 34 of what resulted in a 355 page journal. As I shared my heart, God made it clear that others have suffered through the wilderness, and for that reason I allowed several of the Redbud writers to share from their personal experiences. I pray their stories have encouraged you to continue in your relationship with the Lord and passionately pursue him even when times are hard, when he appears silent, and when it seems all hope is lost. I pray that you will turn to Jesus, cry to Jesus, reach out to Jesus, and choose life even in the desert.
Although I have spent most of this year in the wilderness, the light is shining (at least for now). I’m sure we will revisit this topic again in our time ahead but it has become difficult writing about the desert when God is birthing new life in so many different areas. If you need continuous encouragement through your wilderness, I recommend reading the Psalms. If you have read all of our wilderness posts, check out Marlena Graves as she continues blogging through this topic. Her blog “Through the Wilderness: Following Jesus in the 21st Century” is found here.
We have a few exciting posts on the way, followed by a new blog series within the next couple weeks. I hope you will continue to join us.
