I Fell in Love...

...with the words to a song I recently discovered (although all my friends already knew it apparently :))

The song is all about seasons - in life, in your personal spiritual walk... Honestly, I never knew or felt different seasons spiritually until my last couple years of college. I was always a Christian, but apparently never close enough to God to truly experience seasons and refinement by fire. I could go on about this forever, but I won't right now.
The point of this post is that the song I've copied here has been bringing me to tears for the past few weeks. It says over and over that in EVERY season, God is still God, and we should worship Him when things are good and when they are bad. 

My life the past few years has been a roller coaster of seasons, and now I feel like I'm in a harvest season, and you really have to watch out in the harvest seasons because when things are going great, 
a) You can forget to be dependent on God because you feel confident and are in danger of becoming too self-reliant. You can become ungrateful.
b) The devil is on the prowl and knows when you are in a harvest season and will do anything in his power to try to rob you of your joy. 

Just things that have been on my mind lately. Food for thought. And sharing beautiful lyrics that we should live by :)

Happy Tuesday!

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
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 flame
And 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
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
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 received I will sow
