All of my life, in every season,
You are still God, I have a reason to sing,
I have a reason to worship. – Hillsong, Desert Song
I’ve sang “Desert Song” countless time. I know that in dry seasons & in flourishing seasons, God is still God. He is still holy, faithful, true, good, just, & sovereign.
I know these things.
But this past season? Knowledge of these things wasn’t enough. They were what I held onto; my heart had to believe them.
This past season, there have been multiple reminders of the uncertainty & the quickness of this life. Partners in ministry have passed away, friends have lost their lives, little ones with sicknesses that there are no cures for have taken their last breath, car accidents have claimed the life of young men, depression has threatened the lives of friends…there is a heaviness. In the midst of this season of heaviness, I have seen the Lord working, comforting, providing, healing, & guiding. I think this line of “Desert Song” has been my heart’s anthem – “All of my life, in every season, You are still God, I have a reason to sing, I have a reason to worship.”
I can trust Him. What a beautiful Truth to rest my heart on when I lay my head down each night.
