  1. I find I am writing about myself without even realising it a lot of the time. He pings a thought and draws me into the post. And then somewhere along the way I hear Him speaking to me through my own words on the keyboard. And I have an answer to something I never even knew was a question.
    I sense something similar here. if so – I am so very, very glad.

  2. Arduous is a perfect word for the journey, sometimes not anyone’s fault at all, just a tough slog, whether mentally, emotionally, a time time where God in His grace is working something out of me, healing, but first the sharp scalpel of the surgeon.

  3. Wow, I just got the chance to read this and it really spoke to me this morning. I was reflecting on the choices I’ve made in the past that caused me to drift away from “home,” both literally and spirituality speaking. I love the portion where you wrote, “We don’t have to stay in captivity. We can go home again.” I’m so grateful for His grace that leads us ultimately back to Him where we find our true “home” and rest. The song “Home” by Daughtry popped into my head when I read this, and I think parts of it, though presumably written as a song to a wife/significant other, can apply to our relationship with God as well and the decision to return “home” during a wilderness experience. The chorus begins with, “I’m going home, to the place where I belong, where your love has always been enough for me.” Thank you for your post, gave me a lot to reflect on this morning.
