Ever feel like your heart is alone? Encapsulated in it's own silence, feed only by the springs of your own soul and spirit?
I've been feeling that way lately. As if my heart is not connected or in-touch with others -- my husband the exception.
I can think of people I know and love -- friends and family -- but there's a yearning going on that requires more than people. It requires Jesus.
The wilderness is where we learn to lean. The wilderness is where we discover our own barrenness. I feel sort of like He's calling me to the wilderness. I'm hungry and thirsty for something I can't define, that people cannot supply.
Song of Solomon 8:5 -- "Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her Beloved?"
