The Wilderness





The Wilderness

Sometimes I feel lost in the world, as if God is not hearing my prayer

I send one up  and it just feels as if it hits thin air

I look out at the world and wonder how can there be so much depravity around

While the rich and famous  live comfortably and luxuriously just a couple blocks around town

How can this be, especially for God’s children who are in a season of suffer

And all a person can do is cry and want to be wrapped for protection like a child to its mother

As for me, there are those days when I feel like I am on top of the world walking with my chest puffed up all big and stout

But then I have those days when my head is filled with nothing but doubt

My soul, I just cannot understand it and why it feels so broken

One hour it is jumping for joy and the next hour it feels as if it has been stolen

I understand how the Psalmist can write songs of sorrow

Because at times happiness is a spirit that needs to be borrowed

While being in the wilderness, it can feel like a dry season

But I must understand that it all is for a reason

See in the past, I learn how to gain information by reading books on Him

But now in this season I am learning on how to look to Him

God delivers us out of darkness and gives us eyes to see a future that is much brighter

But while being in this season of the wilderness I must understand that Jehovah is my provider

I will learn how to praise him,  and I know that He will get the best out of me

As I continue to learn from him in the wilderness I know that he is taking me on the road to my destiny


“Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.”
