A Fallen Tree for an Altar

Throughout my life, I have found that the place where I feel closest to myself and to God is in the wilderness. I have found that this is not by chance as my biggest inspiration seems to have felt the same way. I’m not one to force my beliefs on others, but I would like to point out a few references that I have found:

Matthew 4:1  Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness…

Matthew 14:13  And when Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself.

Matthew 14:23  And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.

Mark 1:12  Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.

Mark 1:35  Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.

Mark 6:31-32  And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat. So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.

Mark 6:46  And when He had sent them away, He departed to the mountain to pray.

Luke 4:1  Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness.

Luke 4:42  Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place…

Luke 5:16  So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.

Luke 6:12  Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

John 6:15  …He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone.
