In Every Season

Can I just take a minute be honest?

I have some people in my life that are just plain hurting.

Some have control over the season they are in,
the journey they are having to walk out,
some do not.

Some are trusting God to bring them through it,
some have turned their back on Him
because the pain and the bitterness is too much.

I so often don't have the words to bring comfort or relief, but what I learned again today through the testimony and song below,
is that God IS still God, no matter what season we are in
and we do still have a reason to worship Him.

No weapon formed against us will remain. Period.

In all these things we are more than conquerors
through him who loved us
Romans 8:3

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 the God who provides

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

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
