If you are going to survive your journey it will take a long obedience in the same direction.
We live in a in a world where we can have instant everything. Fast food, Microwaved meals and instant coffee.
That kind of living messes us up when we can’t have everything we want right now.
Sometimes a “wilderness experience” or a “trial” can make us feel like we are never going to get to our destination.
You can have a wilderness experience anywhere: at a graveside, in a bed of sickness, during a divorce.
