Desert Song

THE DESERT SONG

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 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

Chorus:
And 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

And this is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on it’s way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I’ll stand

Bridge:
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 emptied again
The seed I’ve recieved I will sow

A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

God’s Perfect Timing

It’s been a while since my last blog, and i was pretty surprise that there are still readers though… And I Imagewant to share what I’ve learned this past few months… Almost everyday, I’m tempted to take things on my own hands because I thought God won’t handle it the way I want Him too, He will not make it happen now. I feel like I know better than God. But after reading this inspiring blog from singlewoman.net, I chose to trust God and his perfect timing. Again, He has to break my own plans and timelines to make His plans for me happen!

Here are some quotes from the author, that strikes me!

“When you let go, something magical happens, you give God room to work.”

“When you stop trying to make things on happen on your timetable, you invite God’s perfect timing to show up and work miracles.”

“You have to stop your own endless efforts, attempts and manipulations to control every situation.”

“If some things you endlessly ask God for came to you right at this moment, you wouldn’t be ready for them. You wouldn’t be able to handle them. You would actually drown in the very favor that you’re asking for.”

My Thoughts…..

Everday, devote more time in worship, prayer, reading the Bible, meditate on His Word, disciple and be discipled. Faith comes from hearing and hearing the Word of God. We need faith during waiting seasons, and only Gods grace can sustain us to wait until He reveals to us His glorious plans.

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:3

While I’m Waiting

I’m one of the most impatient person on earth. Who among us like waiting, I guess there will only be few. God has brought me in waiting season in almost all areas of my life, this season, really, is one of the hardest, being STILL and trusting our invisible God is really not easy. God has taught me, the role of waiting times and delays for us to fully and completely enjoy His blessings. At the end of every waiting season, we will learn that we have a FAITHFUL God, a God who is true to His promises.

I found this song about waiting from broken mindset blog (http://www.brokenmindset.org) and I guess this is the best thing to do while waiting for God.

While I’m Waiting
by John Waller

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Takeing every step in obedience
While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it’s not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve you while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You, Lord
