The Wilderness

Lord where are you? I cant see your face,
I知 lost and forsaken, what is this place?
I stagger and swerve and in circles I walk,
I hunger and thirst and can hardly talk.

This desert is torment, I知 far from your ways,
Be merciful Father and shorten these days.
If not for your care I would already be dead,
I beg you to lead me to Paradise ahead.

Through faults of my own I wallow in sin,
I wait to be cleansed so my walk can begin.
Purge me with fire so your Spirit will reside,
In a brand new creation, an obedient bride.

I知 here now for training, to get up to speed,
I understand Lord, I realise the need.
I must learn the truth and behave as I should,
I値l stand on my own as others have stood.

The lessons are hard, the muck and dust stick,
When the Lord applies pressure he lays it on thick.
I must wander on, keep lifting my feet,
The longer I tarry, the longer I知 beat.

Praise your name Lord for fine tuning my soul,
I walk trained and with purpose, so let痴 rock and roll.
The hard way is best, good soldiers are formed,
Our enemies are routed and their strongholds stormed.

I致e finally walked out. The wilderness is past,
I am rid of my troubles and settled at last.
The Father has blessed with the touch of his hand,
So I go preach the Son in a new and strange land.

Now I still wander, but with purpose and goals,
For the Lord, for his glory, I知 out winning souls.
Because God has invested his time and his love,
His cross I will carry until I meet him above.


AUTHORS NOTE:
We all have to be put in the wilderness for a time at some stage. How long we remain there depends on us. Some people stay there for their whole lives without even knowing that they are there and some learn their lessons early and move on to greater things. Though being purged by the fire is not usually pleasant, it is for the greater good as we come out better and cleaner than before. A good example of this would be a person with a bad temper. The Lord requires us to be even tempered, so he would send situations to this person constantly to test his patience. This persons time in the wilderness would depend on his ability to learn to act in a more Godly manner in the face of the enemy. Remember to praise the Lord in all things weather they be enjoyable or not. It's for our own spiritual good, after all, the Holy Spirit cannot dwell in a place that is not holy.
