Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they travelled in the desert without finding water. Exodus 15:22
Today you are invited to consider the times when you have felt you are in a desert space – a wilderness when life is hard and God seems to be far away. How have you coped with such times? How do you find your way out of them? If you are in such a place now, what are you doing to try to reach God? Spend some time praising God – whether you feel like it or not today. Read a psalm sing a hymn, be spontaneous and look for things that give you joy – then thank Him and praise Him. At the end of the day look back and see where this has made a difference to how you are feeling.
May God bless you with sparks of joy today, however you may feel.
