All year I’ve been intending to run away to the Wilderness to meet with my Maker and invite Him to speak tenderly to my heart over all that has gone down in 2014.
Instead of systematically going through every problem in my heart and trying to speak new and different truths into the scars, I realised that I simply needed to press into the oldest truth in the world:
Jesus is my First Love. That’s it.
This week was messy and scattered and not nearly long enough, but the God of the wilderness allured and romanced my heart and reminded me that the One who made me saved me and betrothed me to Himself in faithfulness and steadfast love. His love is what set me free, and continues to set me free every day.
Plus, the wilderness was beautiful, and the 5am fog was the stuff dreams are made of. #moreofJesus
