One of the things I'm working on for this weekend's retreat is imagery that exemplifies "The Wilderness." Generally speaking, we associate the wandering of the Isrealites and Jesus in a desolate, hard landscape. They fend off temptations, harsh climate, and much testing.
Yet, the journey of these people contains more than meets the eye. While they are tested, they learn. While they are challenged, they are met with steadfast love.
It all depends on the lens through which we view things. Nature can be cold and foreboding or stunning in its stark beauty. Our own trials can be insurmountable or they can lead us to new heights.
How do you see things?
