Listen: The Desert Song
God has been speaking to me in my quietness, and He has been so good to me. The imagery I have in my head now, which is a vehicle driving in a dark unknown terrain, and I am the driver of this vehicle. The environment is bare, like the desert, and there is little but shrubs in this desolate place. Then, God is in the vehicle sitting with me, directing me to places that are off the track. There is a winding road, with no road signs, or indication of where I am heading.
Yet, in the darkness, God is with me. In the barrenness, He is truly all I need to belong. That I am held in His embrace, and that He will guide me in steps of faith.
This semester has been alright so far, with a lot of unknowns, and modules that are combinations of ones that I love and don’t really enjoy. In terms of service, I’m taking a backseat for the moment, and I know God is moulding me in the places that I am still serving in, and during the free time that I have. This morning, I listened to a whole stream of songs, and felt God’s reassuring presence that everything is going to be okay. As I looked at my timetable and the future things to come, by mind is instantly thrown into a state of recklessness and stress, but God’s calming voice triumphs it all.
This is my prayer in the desert
When all that’s within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain
I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here
And this is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on it’s way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I’ll stand
All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I’m filled to be emptied again
The seed I’ve recieved I will sow
I want to honour God in my life. In every season.
