Is God leaving me in the wilderness forever?

The first thought that hits me is what is your definition of wilderness. If it’s feel good vs. feel bad or good circumstances vs. not so good or even rotten circumstances this may be your problem. The regular spiritual “flu shot” that I take when it looks like God is uncaring, unfair, indifferent, or any other negatives is to visualize Jesus hanging on the cross for me when I wouldn’t have given Him the time of day. “God was IN CHRIST, reconciling the world to Himself.” “All the fullness of the Godhead dwelt in [Christ’s] body.” That was God in human form, God in an earthsuit! THAT’s who God really is. Talk about defusing the doldrums. I would practice thinking this way moment-by-moment, day-by-day, year-by-year. I defy any person to remain defeated if he’ll practice this regardless of his circumstances.
