two weeks ago a friend of mine who is doing a series on the song of solomon on her blog every wednesday emailed me and asked me if i would like to write a guest post. she told me i could pick any part of the book that i wanted to focus on. i immediately knew what chapter i would write about that was so near and dear to my heart i had even written a song out of it. here is a little taste of my post.
you will have to go visit barbie at a freshly brewed life to read the whole story of my journey to encountering God.
i had always described my dry and painful seasons as my wilderness seasons. we all have them. they are the times when we feel the most hidden: invisible really. we feel that we are walking around in circles through a hot desert and all that we want is a cool drink of water... the touch of the Holy Spirit upon our dry hearts. we can look for miles in all directions and see nothing. i used to despise the wilderness. i thought it was punishment for somehow doing something wrong...
i was sure that the dry wilderness i found myself in was something of my own making... somehow my own fault. i did not know then what i know now...
go to my freshly brewed life to read the rest of my very first guest blog post where i describe my surprising discovery about the wilderness seasons. leave a comment both here and there so i know you read it.
i am looking forward to hearing your feedback!
