...on a desert isle...alone...surrounded by ocean...with one measly palm tree that isn't even good for shade...and...well you get the idea.
Actually, I have been feeling this way for several days – maybe you can relate. I’ve been antsy, restless, and simultaneously like my options are severely limited. I seem to see everything there is to complain about while completely overlooking the beautiful, little joys God is constantly interjecting into my life. My mind has been barraged with nagging questions: What’s next? What am I really supposed to do in life? Is God still guiding? And there were – I confess – a few worries. Am I living the fruitful, godly life? Or am I just humanly busy? Maybe this is as good as it’s going to get?
Like a man on the classic desert isle with no shade and no water – I am in need but of what?
LORD! I stand in need of You! Your adventure! Your presence! Your joy! You love! You! You are the One I need. The water, the shade, You are the one who satisfies my soul. And You are delighted to answer my need. So I pray You would answer that need in the way You desire – take me on Your adventure.
Your desire is for God – He is waiting with an adventure.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
