The Woman in the Wilderness
The Woman in the Wilderness is a journey – yours and mine. It’s 40 days of seeking the heart of God. It’s 40 days of coming away, of allowing Him to allure us, to lead us into the wilderness and to speak gently to us.
This devotional was born out of wilderness seasons in my life, where I’ve felt Him beckoning towards me, drawing me to seek Him out – this God Who has always been with me, and yet is Someone I have to search out. Like a precious pearl buried in a field.
Each day of this forty-day journey begins with the story of a woman, who is going through a fantastical wilderness in search of her beloved. She faces obstacles and meets various characters. She faces both defeat and triumph. Accompanying her part of the journey is a section called Manna, which brings in the word of God and reflection on how her journey parallels our lives.
I believe that every Christian in serious and ardent pursuit of Love Divine has at some point, become The Woman in the Wilderness. If any of these resonate with you, maybe you are her too.
The Woman in the Wilderness is available on Amazon.com for only $0.99.
