Desert Disappointment

Jesus my Lord, I praise You on High! I bow before You in worship, my Teacher, Mentor, lover of my soul. Friend in all things. I am eager to walk in the desert with You.

“Then come, Mary, let us walk.”We take the trail to the ’waterfalls’. As we get closer I can hear their roar, and excitement builds within as I quickly make the climb up the rocks.

Then we arrive. . . The roar I “heard” was the wind blowing through the boulders and cliffs; there’s a small pool at the bottom of the precipice, but no waterfall. Disappointment sits on a ledge of my soul. I thought I ‘heard’ the roar and my imagination drew the picture. Jesus?

“What did you see along the way, Mary?” I saw very interesting rocks and boulders that fell from the cliffs above eons ago. I’m not sure of their construction~

seems almost a red sandstone covered by slate. I saw petroglyphs made by an Indian tribe that mysteriously disappeared in an earlier age. I saw a lizard. I saw the water channels built by the early tribes of Indians, and places that just call for me to sit in the quiet alone and meditate.

“Arriving at the ‘waterfall that was not’ was really disappointing to you?” Yes Lord. “Why, Mary?” I thought I would re-find a past experience like Fish Creek Falls. There, standing at the foot of unleashed raw power of the that water careening over the cliff and its thunderous crashing into the churning pool at my feet enthralled me with it's exibition of Your supreme power. You were there Jesus. It felt like "a cathedral where mighty God dwells". Guess that’s what I was hoping to experience again.

“Tell me about what you found here.”
The rock face was beautiful~ almost as though the falls cascading over the high cliff had imprinted themselves in the rock itself.

Yes, it too could be a cathedral of reverence and silence. If I were alone there, it would be a place of communion with the Father.

“As you begin a new trail, My child, allow My goal to be your destination, not your own mind picture. Allow Me to paint the pictures there, and Me to guide you on your journey. And as you walk, look deeply and see the gifts I have planted for you to absorb along the way."

Isaiah 58:11 (NKJV)
The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

You are so patient with me Lord! Thank You! “You know all things including my future and my capabilities. I depend on You. Yes, Jesus, draw Your plan on my heart. I want Your goals for my life. Let me see Your designs as they come, not my own. Lead me Jesus. 

Proverbs 16:9 (AMP) A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.

Do you find yourself planning your steps?
