To those who find themselves, according to God’s good providence, deep in the wilderness way, may you find rest in the blessing of His presence.
“Help me to see that although I am in the wilderness
it is not all briars and barrenness.
I have bread from heaven, streams from the rock,
light by day, fire by night,
thy dwelling place and thy mercy seat.
I am sometimes discouraged by the way,
but though winding and trying it is safe
Death dismays me, but my great high priest
stands in its waters,
and will open me a passage,
and beyond is better country.
