I know I'm filled to be emptied again. the seed I've received I will sow............

">
A friend shared this song with our prayer group this morning and I have been listening to it and meditating on it all day. Please scroll down and turn off my playlist so that you may soak up Desert Song!

DESERT SONG from Hillsong
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Chorus
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

All of my life in every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship
Verse 4
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
Chorus
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

If I could pray a blessing over each of you who pop in to visit and occasionally read a post or a page or two, and those of you who "follow" my blog regularly, it would be that you would recognize yourself in the words of this song and act upon them according to God's riches in Glory as He has lavished and continues to lavish them, upon you. This song draws from so many precious scriptures: from those about our wonderful Jehovah Jireh, our Provider God , to Malachi's words about the refiner's fire to Isaiahs's words from the Lord promising that "no weapon forged against us would prosper" and Paul's assurance in Romans 8:37 that "we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us". Know with every fiber of your being that God is OUR victory, yours and mine, and HE is HERE, always with us, never to leave us or forsake us, our ever present help in times of trouble, Jesus promised "I am with you always ,even unto the end of the world."
May 2010 be a year in which you and I experience many new victories in Jesus in every area of our lives! I want to share what God gives me and teaches me so that it may manifest in the lives of others,the truths of God and His Word, drawing us all to a closer relationship with our Heavenly Father..."I know I'm filled to be emptied again......the seed I've received I WILL sow.............."

Thank you for your comments, you are absolutely right; great blessings we have received from our Lord.
It's wonderful you'll get to go to Ethiopia soon. We are waiting for "THE CALL" which I expect to happen today or tomorrow but everybody else knows could take 1 or 2 months... So maybe around May we'll get to travel. But as you know God always has the correct date, we just have to be patient. (Not so easy for me)
Have a blessed day.
