The title of this post is fitting. After all, we all like dessert, right? Well, before you get to eat your dessert, you must eat your dinner. However, we don't always like what we are served for dinner.

There are times in life when you feel like you're wandering aimlessly through the desert. While you're wandering, you might wonder how you are going to get through it all, but somehow you still get by. You still survive. Your means of survival might not be ideal and you might prefer better conditions, but God still provides and you still manage.

Since the title of this post is Desert Dessert, i'll use food as an analogy to finish my point.

Life has a way of serving interesting dishes. These dishes are full of verity and can be a mishmash of situations that don't mix well. God allows for these situations where He sees fit and places them in your path, serving them to you for a reason.

He doesn't place you in the desert without providing the nourishment needed to make your way out. He feeds you! The food He gives you might not taste good, but it will make your stronger. He knows you won't like it, but you must eat. Look at it this way, your not going to starve!

When these unappetizing situations are served up, take inventory, sort them out, hold your nose, and make sense of them. Not only do you get to eat, you get to learn something new every time you are served. Think about it, there's an endless verity of these dishes and you can learn something new from each and every one of them!

The most important thing to remember is that you must eat to get out of the desert, even if you don't like it. You won't survive without eating. If you don't eat, you will not receive the nutrients necessary to survive the desert and consequently, you will never leave!

Once you finish your dinner by eating what's on your plate, you'll find your way out of the desert. Only then will you receive the dessert that awaits you.

The dinner God provides gives you the nutrients you need to survive. It's that simple.
