I am beginning to realize that time in the desert with Jesus is a time of refreshing and renewal. Deserts, the wilderness, are often thought of as a place you don’t want to be, that it is a place of hard times. But in fact, it is glorious. Soothing warmth and deadly quiet are conduits to the almighty. The bible speaks of the challenges Jesus faced in the desert but what most fail to understand from the verse is that he was there with the Father. There is nothing more restful than the desert when you are there with the Father.
