The Desert Experience: A Cry from the Heart


Lord some people talk about wilderness experiences but at least something grows in a wilderness. But the desert is just full of sand,everything is dry, my soul feels parched and yet all there is to walk through is more dry sand that burns my feet. I am thirsty the only oasis I see are mirages. My heart cries out Why this place Lord?.

I gain no sense of direction and I wander wondering which way is the right way, hope ebbs away. Lord all I want to do is serve you and I end up here it hurts so much. In this place I look at what you have said to me and I wonder how it can  be fulfilled. The sun beats down and I seem to wither up. I feel that I am in a spiritual drought.

But Lord a little still voice says to me “I have called you to walk by faith not by sight”. So I have decided Lord that come what may I will follow after you and do what you say. Lord this desert is not a comfortable place to be but if this is the place you want me in I bow before your will.

Lord all that matters is that you are glorified, Lord I pray use me as you will. Lord give me a heart that beats in tune with yours. Lord I choose to have a passion to worship and serve you. Lord help me to walk in the destiny you have for me.

Lord please empower me afresh to proclaim the Word of God, so that your people may be blessed. Rekindle the prophetic gift in me  and let it burn with glory for your name. Lord I may be in the desert but I know you will lead me through, so I renew my hope in you.

Amen

  1. I want to show some appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular predicament. Because of looking throughout the the web and getting opinions which are not helpful, I assumed my life was gone. Living without the presence of strategies to the issues you have resolved through this short article is a critical case, and the kind that might have adversely damaged my career if I had not noticed your web page. That know-how and kindness in controlling the whole thing was vital. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this professional and amazing guide. I will not think twice to endorse your web blog to any individual who should receive guidelines on this topic.
