Day 28: Water In The Desert

IT is all you SEE.

A barren desert before you.

Your sweat is falling off of your brow.

You wipe you face with your sweaty hand.

Your mouth is beyond dry.

You want WATER but all you see is sand.

You cry out to GOD.


And then you see a puddle.

As you walk closer to the puddle it gets bigger.

Could this be the answer to your prayer.

Did GOD really send WATER?

You stop.

You don't go any further.

You question why GOD would send WATER,

and answer your prayer.

You are sweating more,

yet refuse to go any further,

because you


that there is no way

GOD would answer your prayer

because HE

hasn't answered

your other prayer, yet..


your other prayer, yet.

But maybe just maybe

HE has answered all your prayers

and you are too distracted to



WATER right in front of you

that has always been there,

but you are

LOOKING for something else.

"Peace I leave with you;

MY [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.

Do not let your heart be troubled,

nor let it be afraid.

[Let MY perfect peace calm you in every circumstance

and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]

(John 14:27).


"Out here in the dust and clay,


if there’s a bigger picture,

it’s getting hard to see today.

But I know that YOU won’t leave me here

I don’t know where this is going

But I know who holds my hand"*

as I walk along
