Continuing to answer your questions on life in the wilderness, Jo and Steph discuss the diversity of different wilderness seasons, from becoming parents to infertility, singleness, unemployment, sickness and church discord.

  • What are ways to cope in the wilderness without community?
  • When you see a wilderness season coming how can you be prepared?

Zephaniah 3:17 - God desires to quiet you with His love.

Discussion questions:

1) Describe a wilderness season where you have felt suddenly isolated from a person or people who have previously been part of your core community. How did God use that time to draw you closer to Him?

2) If you knew you were about to step into a wilderness season in six months time, which areas of your spiritual life would need focusing on now to strengthen your trust in the Lord? Are there any spiritual disciplines you could embrace or books you could read to strengthen those weaknesses?

3) Throne or phone? Which one do you head to first in times of difficulty? Is it just habit or are there trust issues (with God or others) that send you there first? Do you allow both God and others to speak into your wilderness times?

Jo and Steph take some time to answer your questions relating to the wilderness.

 

Questions this week include:

  • What do you do when the wilderness is thrust upon you?
  • What is the balance between accepting and rejecting the wilderness?
  • How do you handle disappointments in the wilderness?

 

Discussion questions:

1) When you think about different wilderness seasons in your life can you think of one where God has lead you there although you couldn’t recognize it perhaps at the time?

2) How well do you embrace the positives of the wilderness and do your best to survive well in that arid landscape? Think of a wilderness season right now.  In what ways has God met you in the midst of it? Perhaps take a moment to write a list and thank Him for where He has provided in this season.

3) Take some time to do the daily examen for this past week or 24 hours.  Where has God felt present and close? Where has God felt far away? When have you felt desolated and when have you felt consoled?

4) Are there disappointments in your life that you need to take time to grieve and heal? Are you spreading heartsickness? What practical steps can you take to make time to embrace the healing you need? (A retreat day, prayer counseling, healing course or conference?)
