The Desert Song- My motivation

I left the church last night in tears. I’d been there for 14 hours and was psychically, mentally, and spiritually exhausted.

I guess in my head I thought that after Passion it would become easier. That I would have an automatic joy about getting up and coming to work to mess with all the junk. Don’t get me wrong I love my job but we are all human and going through a time of uncertainty without key players in our leadership. Luckily the people we do have are wonderful leaders who do everything they can to make this time run smoothly.

i first heard this song at the hillsong concert and it brought me to tears (I cried alot in those 5 days lol)

The line “all of my life, in every season, You are still God , and I have a reason to sing, I have a reason to worship”, I thought about myself, my family, and my church. I wish we could grasp that concept. With, without, a pastor, staff, junk- no matter what is going on we still have a reason to Worship. There is still a reason to get up each morning and “Bring Praise” this is something I struggle with. Then last night I really listed to the verses. “This is my prayer in the battle”, thats how I felt last night, like we were fighting in a battle, and most of the time thats how I feel in my personal (non work) life too. Then my friendly 2×4 reminded that no “weapon used against me shall remain” and that in this moment I have every reason in the world to sing praise.

I guess it just did a mental dump so if you are reading this sorry for the randomness. I encourage you to listen to this beautiful song. Maybe I’ll ask if we can sing it in church…



The Desert Song


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


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
