God is waiting for you in the desert
We’ve all been there: “dry seasons” when God feels distant and far away. But did you know that during the first three centuries of the church, many men and women purposefully moved into actual deserts to seek God? They understood something that we have missed: the desert is not a place of vast nothingness but a place where we can truly experience God’s provision, restoration, and intimacy.
Through Scripture and personal stories of her own times of waiting and struggle, Allison Allen offers a fresh perspective for those who long to see God in their dry seasons. She shows how God can use these times in our lives to reveal himself to us, to give us rest, to get our attention, to show us our strength, to help us experience his blessings, and more.
I needed to read this book, it honestly came a perfect time for me. I have been in a desert place. I don’t feel I am fully out of it yet, but I believe my perspective has changed thanks to reading this book.
I have never pictured a desert place as a place I would want to be, or where I can grow. But I see maybe I am growing more than ever before. Things can grow in the desert places.
Allison share’s her own desert experience and how God used that to grow her. I appreciated the back and forth between her own story and practical application.
