Desert


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...

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 flame

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

This is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on its way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand

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

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

To a woman after God's own heart as am I,

Your blogs touched on so many faucets of my own life. Although I am only a single military policewoman in the Navy I totally understand and feel the same way. My soul cries out to God in the same ways and I am grateful that you posted these it has blessed me immenseley. So many of us sisters in christ are going through hard ships that we carry silently. Thank You Again MA3 Kimble
