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?
