The journey begins
“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”
~ Alan Alda
Somehow it seems fitting to start my first blog post with a quote from someone else. I doubt myself. I wonder what I have to say that would be of interest to anyone else. Well that may be the case, but if you are a reflective person I hope you will find my musings of interest.
I have been pondering for some time the 40 years in the Wilderness that Moses spent with the Children of Israel. I remember being told once that the journey to the promised land should only have taken about two weeks. Now I know men don't like to ask directions but all that wandering is stretching things in my opinion! So why did they have to spend 40 years getting there, and what can I learn from their experience? I think I will ponder this question over the coming weeks on my blog.
Today's thought is:
How comfortable am I in Egypt? Do I even want to follow God's leading?
Today Lord we have so many ways we can read your Word. It's available online, in the Bible and as an App. The Children of Israel had a pillar of cloud and fire to follow. Help me to see that I have an equally clear guide if I choose to follow your Word each day.
