Into the Desert

I stand with my back to the world.
Its distractions and temptations fading away
A mirage of life, then, gone.

Ahead the desert,
A hazy promise;
A journey into peace;
A journey into solitude;
A journey to find meaning
In a world of confusion.

There is no confusion here;
Life is precious and to be lived;
The journey a test of strength;
A trial of commitment to the Way.

What is the way?

Who is the way.

The God who was here first;
Tested and tempted

The God who remains now;
His footsteps in the sand

The God who is always;
Our oasis, our hope, our guide.
