I have to admit I am in a prolonged period of spiritual struggle right now. I am yo-yoing so much it’s really quite disturbing. This affect has been felt in all sorts of areas in my life, from work to home, from private to public.
It was only when I read a recent post by a fellow Christian blogger that I really understood what was actually taking place. I am in the wilderness, spiritually speaking, much like after the Israelites were taken out of Egypt.
They were so used to the miracles, power and influence of God that now – suddenly – they suddenly seemed so alone. Things were not going their way and they faced test after test. Hardship after hardship. Trial after trial.
They failed often and they cried out for help and action.
