Lord, I love You so much. My greatest desire is to please You, to honor You with my words and actions. My heart is steadfast, but too often my thoughts are not.

Oh, for sure, God’s provision had been evident, His power amazing.

But this … this was different.

Doubt and frustration had flung itself through the Israelites’ camp. They were hot. Dirty. Hungry. Thirsty. Surely if God really loved them, He would not have brought them to this despicable place — this desert place with no end in sight.
