“There must be a wilderness behind those eyes,
So bright and fearing
So wide and vast behind the curtain drawn.
So many gloomy clouds over the sky above,
That turns to clear nights of stars beyond
Of galaxies and planets new
The terrain of desserts lay upon mountainous scopes.
The wild horses run free
among the delicate sand of the heart.
The heart that beats only to see
the move of the Great Shepherd
who has wandered every crevice and every wide dry scape
of this soul of mine.
The wet, the dry, the dead, He is using to reveal His divine romance.”
By L.A MacDonald

Will bring her into the wilderness,
And speak comfort to her.” – Hosea 2:14
