this Christmas, we are going to talk about the times in our lives when we have to pass through or even live in a charred wilderness. Hopefully, these are short seasons in our lives. Seasons of hardship and pain. Nothing seems green. Water is scarce. Hope is hard to find.
Jesus, Hope in Our Wilderness
The good news is that many if not most of the Bible characters experienced the same feelings (before there was a Christmas there was, of course, ‘holy days’ for God’s people). Yet, in it all there was HOPE!
