A Song in the Desert: Desert Song by Hillsong United Chords

I know we all go through seasons in the desert.  I'm not talking about those who literally live in the desert, cause I do, ;).  I'm talking about the seasons in our lives.  Right now my family and I are going through a very big desert right now, and I know I've said it before but I will say it again.  No matter how dry the desert or dire the circumstances, we must forever and always give praise to the Lord.  No matter the situation, no matter the pain, no matter the battle, God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  He is always faithful, He is the ultimate authority, and He has given it to us!!

I can tell you without giving away the desert that I am in, that this song is an anthem to me today.  I play it often singing to my Father and reminding myself exactly what I need to do in this season, and exactly who He is and who He is in me.  :)

Be blessed always...

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