Don't Waste Your Wilderness

Description

What are you doing today to prepare for serving God tomorrow—or whenever He calls you? Remember my mother’s wisdom. Don’t waste your wilderness years!

My times are in your handsPSALM 31:15.

God’s time is perfect. But so often it’s not our perfect time, is it?

I remember how, when my children were small, I felt bound by smallness — clothes, toys, sticky fingerprints, small talk. While I’m convinced nothing is as significant as rearing godly children, I believed life held more.

My wise mother said, “Anne, don’t waste your wilderness years.” She said if one day God called me to serve Him outside my home, I needed to be ready. So I disciplined myself to pray and study my Bible on a daily basis.

I was encouraged by Hosea 2:14, where God promised He would “speak tenderly” to me in the wilderness. And He did. Years later, when God called me out into the world, I was ready.

What about you? What are you doing today to prepare for serving God tomorrow—or whenever He calls you? Remember my mother’s wisdom. Don’t waste your wilderness years!
