I have seen, heard, and read how difficult it is to live in the wild. Yet, I never thought, a wilderness, scary in all it's ways, could exist in your own mind.
If you think about it, in the wild, you have the jungle like surrounding, that has you confused and not knowing which way is which. Just like our thoughts can play some cruel tricks on us, and have us confused on how to think, or act.
Just like the wild, has strange creatures, and animals in which are fierce and dangerous, your mind can linger on certain situations, that can be dangerous, and fierce (detrimental to your health).
You could get lost in the wild where no one will ever find you, just as you can lose yourself, and your joy, in your thoughts.
The good news is, God is that compass, and as I'm learning more and more, we must make the choice, to take that compass out, and look to it, to find direction.
In case you are someone who ventures into the wild, wilderness, or a jungle with others, in case you don't understand the way, and can't use the compass correctly, you can rely on a friend, to help guide you out.
This is Jesus. This is God's Word. These are the individuals you are blessed with in your life.
I'm one to not understand directions, but I'm so very thankful for my friends, who will help me along the way.
Thank God for loved ones.

Psalm 27:4-5 (my prayer)
The one thing I ask of the Lord—the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord's perfections and meditating in his Temple. For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.
