Here though, there isn’t much to see most of the time; it’s just the ground and the sky and very little else in between. This place can sometimes have a way of making you believe that all this emptiness might really be all there is left to hope for, and I admit I’ve given in to the thought a few more times than I’m proud of. I guess it’s just hard sometimes to imagine that His love could somehow reach this far, to find me here and now. And maybe that’s the point... that I’m not supposed to imagine it at all.
When those moments come that find me too tired to grumble anymore, I am still long enough to see with my own eyes how He awakens the dawn with a hundred different colors before I even realize it's taking my breath away, or how He sometimes paints the sky so blue it'd make the deepest ocean seem pale. And then I finally realize for myself that His love really is so much wider than all this empty space and far longer than the journey before me. And His love is here… even here… already here.
So while I still don't quite understand why He’s led me into this desert of my life, I'm learning to trust that though horses and chariots may fail, He will carry me out.
