LET’S PUBLISH THIS BOOK TOGETHER
And in publishing it we can remove the “scary uncertainty” from the wilderness!
One verse of scripture that I allowed to beat me down for decades is – “The way of the unfaithful [transgressor] is hard.” [Proverbs 13:15b]
This verse wrecked my life for many years because my life has been so hard for so long that I figured I must be an unfaithful person.
Deep down in my heart I knew I was an extremely faithful person, but the circumstances of my life communicated something very different.
Knowing that God never lies and that His word is truth I was convinced I had brought all the trouble in my life on myself. This exacerbated my performance based lifestyle which only compounded my troubles. I could never work hard enough to “prove” my faithfulness to God. I slaved through extreme disciplines thinking if I worked harder for God He would take the heavy burden of my difficult life off of me.
Finally, I discovered in my latest wilderness experience that in finding the rest of God I would be able to find the “rest” of God. I discovered that in the place of God’s rest I could accomplish so much more than through my striving to please Him.
My book, Welcome To The Wilderness, is what I discovered as I was on the verge of coming out of a seven year wilderness experience in the fall of 2010.
My prayer for you as you read my book is that you will get the most out of your wilderness experiences, and if you have been through one and did not learn the lessons this book will teach you, that you will be bold enough to ask God for a redo!
Welcome To The Wilderness!
