rholy29 Feeling like your at a standstill or a fork in the road in your life should not necessarily be viewed as negative. There are many instances in the Bible where God used a wasteland or desert experience to strengthens ones faith and demand intimacy with Him. In this wasteland or desert experience, there are no distractions, there are no aids to help you thru the harsh and brutal treatment, He has orchestrated this moment for you to just rely only on Him. In this desolate environment, you never come out the way you went in. This is God guiding you into a mandatory fast. You should encourage these dry experiences as long as you live. New levels, new devils. I see increase!
