The love of God in the desert – Thought for the day

Our Almighty Father always comes through and never lets us down, especially when we are living in the desert; the wilderness. It is, in fact, in the desert that we become purified and refined to experience His mighty love with ever-increasing intensity and profundity. No one can grow in the love of God and neighbor unless they first pass through the desert of purification. It is precisely there, in the desert, that the infinite love of the Father becomes manifest it all its power and glory, for if God had to be absent in the desert there would literally be nothing left.
