God Meets Us In Our Desert

Image result for facebook free

Last week before going to bed, I read some Facebook posts of people with whom I no longer have regular contact.  I found what I read to be upsetting.  Then I had even more disturbing dreams about these people.  I awoke feeling dejected about these broken relationships.

Last week was the first day of my new year in CBS (Community Bible Study).  We had a guest musician lead us in a couple of songs; one which I had not heard before.

Desert Song

Video   (don’t skip the video!!!)

This is my prayer in the desert
And all that’s within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a 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 forged 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
And triumph is still on it’s way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I’ll stand

I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged 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 harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I’m filled to be emptied again
The seed I’ve received I will sow

God sent this song for me.  I was in a desert.  It is time for the refiner’s fire to burn away all the impurities of these relationships which are not meant to be.  These relationships will only cause grief.

God spoke to me through this song.  Though breaking ties is difficult, I have a reason to sing; I have a reason to worship!  God intended it to be this way.  In the end, triumph will come and I will have experiences to “sow” with others who face similar situations.
