Loss has brought change into your lap. You are looking for perspective. Perhaps you are asking God, what is the meaning of my pain? or Is there meaning in my pain?

WLDMS 90 Day Devotional Book’s approach will penetrate your heart and illuminate your journey. Each devotional entry is designed to stir prayerful thought and reflection as you travel through the Wilderness. When you return to the devotional book time and time again, you will have a better sense what has changed and how God has moved in your life.

As you journey through the Wilderness, you learn to acquire different “tools” and put them in your spiritual toolbox. These tools are traits such as courage, endurance, prayer, fasting, obedience, patience, etc. You will return often to the toolbox to make use of them. These traits are the heartbeat of the devotional book.

Devotional Outline:

Day 1 – 11 Why Are You Here?

Day 12 – 25 Specific Purposes Present to Your Situation

Day 26 – 55 Pushed to Change

Day 56 – 77 Becoming a Courageous Person

Day 78 – 90 God’s Ways are Not Always Direct, But on Course

Key questions or thoughts highlighted:

How am I coping with this strange way of life?

Initially, the path is filled with change, pain, and struggle.

Don’t allow loss to distract you from your relationship with God.

God will bring your life to order.

God knows what He’s doing. He’s allowing this event to happen for a reason.

Remain committed to The Lord during this difficult season.

As time unfolds, the focus lessons on the loss.

God is bringing something fresh, full of hope.

Am I allowing The Lord to order my steps?

God’s relentless love protects and directs you.

The journey changed me on the inside.

Do I have an unselfish concern for others?

I will share the wonderful things God does.

Being in the Wilderness can be overwhelming, as one grapples with dead ends, setbacks, detours and delays. God DOES have a plan of escape. Moses, Joshua, David, Job, Jesus and Paul were not exempt from experiencing a Desert time in their life – and they would call themselves blessed that they did!

The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear. (Mark 4:24b AMPC).
