“And now, here’s what I’m going to do:
I’m going to start all over again.
I’m taking her back out into the wilderness
where we had our first date, and I’ll court her.
I’ll give her bouquets of roses.
I’ll turn Heartbreak Valley into Acres of Hope.
She’ll respond like she did as a young girl,
those days when she was fresh out of Egypt.”
I know how much freedom and peace I find when alone with God out in nature so I offered to do it for individuals. My friend Lisa brought her bible along and it was a perfect spring evening to literally dance in the sun, roll around in the grass, and giggle till our stomach hurt. She was able to let go and let the warmth of the sun embrace her.
One of the hardest lessons we all face in life is letting go and truly giving all our burdens to the Lord. If only we would wait and be still as He tells us….if only we would let Him fight for us…..maybe there would be less heartache and more victories.
