In the Desert Place
Psalm 42:1-2 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for Thee, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God?
Matthew 5: 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
In this Desert Place
by Danette Kettwich
I've let myself wander
Into the desert once again,
Where my spirit thirsts
And sin becomes my friend.
Parched as the sand is here
My life has now become,
Leaving me so empty
And Your will's undone.
Lord, find me in this place
Send Your healing rain,
I can't bear it any longer
The cracked dryness of this pain.
Lord, please wash over me
With Your unfailing grace;
As I meet with you here
In this desert place.
One day apart from You
I find is all it takes,
For sin to grab my heart
And fill me with mistakes.
Lord, Please rain down on me
With your anointed grace,
As I kneel before you here
In this desert place.
John 4:13-14 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
Revelation 7:16-17 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb in the center of the throne shall be their shepherd, and shall guide them to springs of the water of life; and God shall wipe every tear from their eyes.
