The Dried Desert

Well, it's been almost two weeks since I last posted, and after such a wonderful, joyous high, I feel like these last thirteen days, I have walked through the desert. Does your life at times make you think your life is a barren land?

During these thirteen days, I have encountered multiple disappointments, that left me confuse, and questioning my new journey and every decision I have made so far, which caused me to be angry at myself. Because in the back corners of my mind, I knew this was a test of my faith, and that God loves me. Yet he saw fit to have me walk through this desert experience.

As you walk through a desert you thirst for water, without it you won't survive physically. I knew I wouldn't survive without the relief of drinking the water of God's Word. Around the tenth day, I stop feeling sorry for myself, and began to drink the water of his word, Psalms 23:4 resonate with me: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me." Each day the word started to quench my inner thirst. Slowly, my soul was relieved and refreshed. My self-doubts, and fears, now seemed to be an understated nuisance.

And as of today, my life has returned to its old self, full of hope, beauty and totally relying on God's word. The enemy tried to steal the promises that God had given me, but my desert experience has renewed my joy in knowing that God will always keep his promise to us, and he will never forsake us.
