Hey guys! It’s been a minute, I know, but I’m back! *waves at everyone*
How y’all doing!? What’s been going on in your life? I hope everything is well!
My post today is just about something that just keeps popping up. It seems like there’s been a lot of talk lately regarding the wilderness season. I had to present a sermonette and while praying on what to preach about, I was led to discuss the purpose of our wilderness seasons. Then the following Sunday, my Pastor mentioned the wilderness. Then I listened to a sermon by Pastor Michael Todd and he talked about the wilderness, as well! There’s just been a lot of wilderness talk lately. ALOT! So now, I’m left wondering…why in the world is there so much wilderness talk?!
The Lord often gets my attention through repeating things. I believe the wilderness season is coming to an end. Greater is coming and these messages have all summarized what I’ve experienced and why I’ve experienced these things. In the wilderness we get to build a relationship with Godard we get prepared for our future. We get humbled and tested, but it is all for our good!! We need what we’re going through now, so we will be able to handle what lies ahead. And that gets me sooooo hype!
The wilderness isn’t fun. It’s hard and frustrating. Temptations are REAL! (Lord they are so so real….but I digress.) The wilderness includes feeling lost, alone, heartbroken, angry, sick, tired, sick, tired and being tired of being sick and tired. You may even feel like wanting to die, but DO NOT THROW IN THE TOWEL! I believe the wilderness season is coming to an end for many people! Breakthrough is on the way! Your promise is near. Nothing you’ve experienced or witnessed will be wasted. Keep pressing. I’m praying for everyone who is tired and ready to quit, I pray that God will strengthen you and will give you the endurance to keep moving forward. You will make it to your promised land, you will see your dreams manifest, you will live! In Jesus name.
Here’s some verses for encouragement. Love you! 💕
