rejoice || wilderness
a well in the wasteland.
There are times in life where we’re “stuck” in the in-between.
One of the toughest lessons I’ve had to learn, is to actively wait while I’m in the in-between.
As Westerners, we’re conditioned to be time-conscious — not to waste time, but to save it and steward it.
What I’ve learnt is that ACTIVE waiting is very different from PASSIVE waiting.
The in-between is a time for growth.
A time for stewardship, for cultivating, for digging deeper wells.
In the desert, there is no commodity more valuable than water.
When you don’t know what’s next, or even if you know, and you’re waiting for the release, don’t pop up an umbrella and camp out under the palm trees of the oasis.
Now is the time to break through the hard ground, to dig deep, to be filled with Living Water that flows out of your belly.
His promise is that this will bring healing to the Nations.
The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17 NIVUK
