Desert Song

Daniel was playing around on the guitar two Sundays ago and Desert Song by Hillsong made him break down a little bit. (I think it is amazing to have a man that can be honest about when something gets to him.) At the time, I was just touched by how much he was moved. However, yesterday as I was falling apart, I found myself searching for a prayer or song to repeat to myself. The words to this song swelled from my heart. I have always found truth in it, but at times like this it becomes so real and true.

Desert Song
This is my prayer in the desert
And all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
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

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 empited again
The seed I've recieved I will sow
