Signpost for the Wilderness:

“Help me to see that although I am in the wilderness, it is not all briars and barrenness.  I have bread from heaven, streams from the rock, light by day, fire by night, thy dwelling place and thy mercy seat.  I am sometimes discouraged by the way, but though winding and trying, it is safe and short;”
