Everyone has their desert, Jesus had his.
When things go wrong and we feel we are in a desert where there is no to help us, no one who understands our situation, no one to help us get through, no one hope in sight... just remember, even in the deserts of our lives, there is opportunity to give Thanks and Praise to God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I personally, have a desert in my life now. I am not teaching, which I love to do. I am faced with financial burdens, and because of that I am faced with not seeing my son; yet, I know that this desert is a place where I am supposed to be now. So, I am waiting and reading God's word. I am listening for His voice.
