When you’re in a desert, you most likely don’t think about singing.
You think about how hot it is. You think about how thirsty you are. You think about how amazing a sip of water would taste. You wonder why you are where you are and how you got there. You think about GETTING OUT of the desert.
Singing just isn’t the first thing that comes to mind.
The past several months have been difficult for me. I’ve had up’s and down’s, but overall it’s felt like a dry, barren desert.
I lost someone that I love. I feel “stuck” and without clear direction. Each day is a battle with anxiety and discouragement. I take a few steps forward, only to falter and fall on my face.
But God has been faithful. Although I continue to fall, He lifts me up and gives me the strength to keep going.
And I pray that in the midst of it I will find a song.
I want to focus on the good things! The many blessings that God has given me. The way He has provided, opened doors, and answered prayers. And most of all, I want to focus on who He is and the relationship that I am able to enjoy with Him.
There is a song…it’s entitled “Soar,” by Meredith Andrews. Each time I hear it, God reaches out to me and reminds me that He sees where I am and what I’m going through. He will clear my path and make a way. He will break the strongholds in my life. He will keep every single one of His promises. And – most importantly – He is with me through everything I face.
If you have a moment, I would encourage you to listen to the words of this song. Be reminded that God is with You and that nothing you encounter is too difficult for Him.
And in the midst of our deserts, let us choose to sing. ❤
