The way to God

He found them in a desert land, in an empty, howling wasteland (Deuteronomy 32:10; NLT).

He has known your walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the Lord your God has been with you (Deuteronomy 2:7; HNV).

In all their suffering he also suffered (Isaiah 63:9; NLT).

The Lord is close to all who call on him (Psalm 145:18; NLT).

***********************************************

The way to God 
Lies through our howling wastelands,

Through suffering and failure, 
Pain and fear;

Through brokenness, and grief,
And sharp temptation,

For when we’re in our desert
He is near.
