Wonder

In all the ways life comes at us, in the countless ways we analyze our lives, we rarely give ourselves the benefit of wonder.

When was the last time you felt surprise and wonder at the beautiful creation you are? When was the last time you embraced the unfamiliar and inexplicable in your life?

Desert of Solitude: Elevator Pitch

Desert of Solitude is for the dreamers and strivers. The people who may have achieved nothing, something or a great deal, but that “one thing” continues to elude them. What is it that you want from life, in life or through your life? What do you think you’re missing? What do you believe will complete your existence?

It doesn’t matter. Whatever “it” is, you are enough for your life as you are now.

Proverbs 27:12 says “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

If we can’t be transparent with one another then there is no way we can grow (sharpen) each other.

If we are afraid to be transparent because of shame hidden away in our life then transparency should be an encouragement for us to move beyond what brings shame and into a beneficial and strengthening relationship. See Galatians 6:1 “Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

On the other hand if we are afraid to be transparent because of self-doubt or shyness then we may be robbing those around us of blessings and encouragements. 1 Corinthians 14:26 “What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.”

Your description of Christ is on the mark. He had little patience and was very blunt with those who should have, or professed, to know better. Yet, with the poor, sick, weary, and those truly seeking him he had compassion and kindness.

Your words are encouraging to me but also convicting. Nicely said, uhh Kindly said? Well put! :)
