Desert, 4.

Lent begins tomorrow.

This year I will be continuing to grapple with the deepest death I've yet to die.  Valleys so sunless and deserts so dry I've needed deliverance, not just help, where God proved that his gift was not less than salvation.  I'll be reading and praying through the book of Jeremiah, to see how God rescues his servant from difficult situations, and redeemed them, for His own glory.

even in the wilderness
—especially in the wilderness—
you shall love Him.
