Hey TCTC Friends!
“The Wilderness is the place we struggle with false self, and encounter a loving God who offers himself as a substance of the new self.” -Henri Nouwen, The Way of the Heart
This year is rooted in a deep challenge: To step into the wilderness. With everything that goes on around us, silence, solitude, and searching seemingly takes a back seat to the hustle and bustle of life. Without even noticing, we become molded and shaped into the image of what is around us. We lose sight, lose focus, and ultimately allow the world to shape us into its image.
Throughout the life of Christ we see Him escaping to the mountains and wilderness to seek The Father on a deeper level. Just Him and The Father. We enter the space of wilderness to die to old self and find new self through seeking God. It is the space we can be real, honest, and be transformed in our inner being.
When we go into the wilderness we aren’t pulling away from people, it just empowers us to move closer; we don’t get to stay in the wilderness. The goal of life is not to be shaped by people. It is to be shaped by God! The Lord who sends us into the world, calls us back to never-ending communion.
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight.” Matthew 3:3
