Desert Song

Each time I go through tough times in life, I am reminded of what my dad shared with me about desert season and this song.

During times when Israelites travelling to the promise land, they went through the desert and in this period is where their faith was tested. They faced famine, tiredness, frustration. Many lost their hope but some stand strong in God.

Do we face desert times in our lives?

I thought these lyrics beautifully written by Brooke Fraser. Each word speaks to me because it somehow represents my prayer to God as I continue to walk with Him. So ya, I made this song as my prayer to Him..

verse1 :
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 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

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 favour and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be emptied again
The seed I've received I will sow

(DESERT SONG) written By Brooke Fraser

Yes God, in every season, You are still God and my reason to carry on this life. Amen.
