Seasons of waiting are like deserts. The Deserts Are the Low Points in our lives. In the Bible we learn that deserts can be the very places where God finds us and calls us back to life in him. In every desert there is a road that leads us to His Presence. No one wants to go through the desert, but deserts are a place of transformation. One thing is true, your story has to go through the dessert to get to what He has written in the pages of your life.
There are two ways to wonder…that’s why we’ve called this sermon and the series we'll be preaching the next few weeks…the Paradox of Wonder. One definition of wonder is to stand in awe. Another definition is to speculate…to question. People don’t normally talk about suffering and resurrection in the same breath but they belong together because such is life. The apostle Paul joined these two extremes in his letter to the Philippians. Here’s what he said: Philippians 3:10-11 TLB 10 Now I have given up everything else—I have found it to be the only way to really know Christ and to experience the mighty power that brought him back to life again, and to find out what it means to suffer and to die with him. 11 So whatever it takes, I will be one who lives in the fresh newness of life of those who are alive from the dead.
