This sunday we started a new series at my church called “The Land Between” – looking at the Israelites forty-year journey through the desert towards the Promised Land. Reflecting on this ancient story, I realised that this “land between” was fertile ground for COMPLAINT and for STRUGGLE. But interestingly, it was also fertile ground for FAITH and for GROWTH.
So often in life, the space we despise is the place where God does some of His richest and deepest work!
Right now I am in the “land between”. So many things uncertain. So many unanswered questions. Way out of my comfort zone but not yet arrived at the destination. Perhaps you are in the same place?
But what I am absolutely convinced of is that in the midst of the struggle and the complaint, GOD IS AT WORK in amazing and unseen ways – preparing my heart, teaching me new ways, and reminding me of the things that matter most!
