John answered them, "I baptize with water, but among you stands one you do not know, even he who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.-" John 1:26-27
- Describe a time in your life when you experienced the wilderness. How did God meet you there?
It was when I was heartbroken from a relationship. God then, was only second in my life. Not even second probably. But I knew, He wasn't my first. When I lost that relationship with a person who put on a pedestal, my life was totally devastated. I thought I lost everything. But in those moments of despair, I clung to God. He was the only one I can turn to. There was no human being who can console my wrecked heart—only God. That moment of wilderness led me to know Him deeper, to ask questions I've never asked before. He was there with me all throughout while I lived in the dark. I never left me. He stayed with me. He gently ushered me to the light, out of the wilderness.
