Why does God lead us through desert places?  That He might humble us, that He might test us, and that the true condition of our hearts might be revealed.  There’s nothing like the desert to help you discover the real you.

From Ephesians 4:21-24:  “For surely you have heard about Him and were taught in Him, as truth is in Jesus, to put away your former way of life, your old self, corrupt and deluded by its lusts, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to clothe yourselves with the new self, created according to the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”

Anais Nin Quotes

Do not seek the because–in love there is no because, no reason, no explanation, no solutions.

Anais Nin (1903-1977) was a French-born American writer of novels and short stories.  Much of her published works came from her diaries.
