"The Desert Song" by Hillsong United

This is my prayer in the desert
When all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides

And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flame

And I will give praise, I will give praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain
And I will rejoice, I will declare
God is my victory and he is here

This is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on its way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand

And I will give praise, I will give praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain
I will rejoice, I will declare
God is my victory and he is here

Bridge: All of my life, in every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be emptied again
This seed I've been given I will sow

Oh that's an old one, but still really good! You know a while ago, there was this funny video that had the same song but different lyrics. These two guys were fishing, and one of them was struggling to reel in a fish. Then singing to the other guy,"Curtis take the reel, Take it from my hands, 'Cause I cant do it on my own..." And the video goes on like this, making that song seem so funny. It's just so dramatic.

I also like artists like Jamie Grace and TobyMac. Also Hillsong, Bethel, Newsboys, Switchfoot, and really whatever else.

"Guilty" -Newsboys

When did it become breaking a rule
To say Your name out loud in school
When Your name's the only one that sets us free

When did it become incorrect
To speak the truth about life and death
When Your life gave us all eternity

So even if it gets me convicted
I'll be on my knees with my hands lifted
If serving You's against the law of man
If living out my faith in You is banned
Then I'll stand right before the jury

If saying I believe is out of line
If I'm judged 'cause I'm gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be guilty

I'll rise up and honor You
I'll testify to the good You do
'cause Your grace and Your mercy have overtaken me

So even if it gets me convicted
I'll be on my knees with my hands lifted

If serving You's against the law of man
If living out my faith in You is banned
Then I'll stand right before the jury


If saying I believe is out of line
If I'm judged 'cause I'm gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be ...
Guilty by association
Guilty of being the voice proclaiming
Your ways, Your truth, Your life
I'll pay the price to be Your light

If serving You's against the law of man
If living out my faith in You is banned
Then I'll stand right before the jury

If saying I believe is out of line
If I'm judged 'cause I'm gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be guilty

That song, geek. Is that how you really feel? God doesn't hate us. I know you see wars and death and torture and starvation and disease and whatever else is horrible, but God didn't cause that. Humans did. All humans are imperfect and selfish and have done terrible things, but God doesn't want that.

You might ask, so then why does God allow it? If He's so powerful, why doesn't He stop the wars?

The answer is: free will. We have a choice. If God were to force us to always be good, to accept Him, to love Him back, then that wouldn't be loving. He wants us to choose to do the right thing. He's letting us have free will.

You still might ask, then what about diseases? And natural disorders, things humans can't help?

The world's not perfect either. It's decaying, and one day God will wipe it out to make a new earth, but until then we just have to trust Him. He's God! He's got it under control. Knowing that, I have no fear, and I have hope. Where do you get your hope, geek?
