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.”

Back on Course

From Luke 15:31-32:  “Then the father said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.  But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found.'”

Marking calendar

Making this His day

Back on course with God

Kneeling now to pray


Forsaking darkness

Finding blessed light

Immersed in God’s Word

Hearing truth so bright


Growing in God’s grace

Worshipping with Him

Each precious moment

Walking in rhythm


Returning back home

Living in His peace

Promised Christ’s coming

Bringing life’s new lease

From 2 Peter 3:17-18:  “You therefore, beloved, since you are forewarned, beware that you are not carried away with the error of the lawless and lose your own stability.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.  Amen.”

From Isaiah 66:12-13:  “For thus says the Lord:  I will extend prosperity to her like a river and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing stream, and you shall nurse and be carried on her arm and bounced on her knees.  As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
