i have experienced a spring of hope in this desert!
i was able to feel how deeply grateful i am of my testimony and salvation.
a wonderful feeling of gratefulness is like water to my sand.
i was able to look past my present state of dryness and reach out and testify to the girls in the program here. although i tell bits and pieces of it all the time- it is another thing to formally sit in front of all the girls and bravely bare my soul. not that this is a hard thing for me to do- because i love to tell them of Gods miracle working power... but it is quite different when i am in the wilderness.
could it be that i have been brought to the wild region by God to be brought to THE END OF MYSELF?
to learn to rely on nothing else, but my faith.
i have been thrown in the desert to put to death the things that have been holding me back from fully operating in the spirit of love and truth...
my flesh, feelings, emotions, lust, desires and wants are being painfully scorched away in the dry heat of this desert.
i now have more hope to carry me through this trial.
...all is not lost!
