Today's Mental Image:
WASTE LANDS & WATER HOLES
(Failure, despair, pain, hurt - these are the tools God uses in the Wasteland)
". . . What so many Dreamers miss during their trek through desert times are the diamonds in the sand -- those extraordinary evidences at almost every turn of a generous and merciful Dream Giver at work."
"As you might imagine, it didn't take long in that Waste Land for my faith to wither. Before long I felt adrift in anger and confusion."
God's motive and plan in the Waste Land is to prepare you to become the person who can succeed at your Dream.
When your lack is finished, the Waste Land is finished !
There are three invitations as we come into the Water Holes !
COME TO THE WATER.
When you enter sanctuary, the first call you will hear will invite you to leave behind the dirt and hurt of the Waste Land.
COME INTO THE LIGHT.
God will then iinvite you into a closer relationship with Him. Once past wrongs are dealt with and resolved, a friendship can reach new depths.
COME UP HIGHER !!
Now God will ask you to consecrate yourself to Him
-- and surrender your dream --
["When Ordinary heard the Dream Giver's request he was shocked!]
