Simcha writes:"The desert is a dry, difficult place to be, with little or no physical refreshment to the body. Hot sun, dry heat, no water, and dangerous conditions, it’s not a place to get lost! But for some reason God wants to ‘allure’ us there."
Simcha writes, "What if God is leading us right into the eye of the storm, and being in the storm with Him, IS His great rescue plan?"
Sometimes we don’t realise what God rescued us from, without hindsight... but one thing we all have in common is that immovable place He puts us on: His rock, where nothing and no one can move you.

The woman with the alabaster jar has to be one of the most well known and loved stories in the Bible. It talks of a woman scorned, who should have been turned away and rejected, she was known to be unclean and was a woman... but Yeshua said that she would be remembered through the generations.
