Oasis in the Desert

Over the weekend, I remembered something the Lord laid on my heart years ago in 2005. I was thinking about this weird situation we find ourselves in today of being isolated in our homes and wondered if there are some who feel as if they are in a desert storm looking for a refuge. Therefore, I am sharing this hoping that it will speak to the hearts of those whose souls are weary and dry, longing for an oasis of peace, hope and joy.

 

There is an oasis in the desert

A place of refuge from each storm

Where you will find cool refreshing

Early every morn.

But days go by in the desert

Where souls are weary and dry

Longing for more we struggle…

And thirst… and cry.

Oasis in the desert

Abundant water for my soul

If only I could get there

To be nourished by the flow.

Lord lead me from the desert

To the oasis for my heart

Lead me from my empty longings

To the Living Water of new starts

Quench my thirst Lord Jesus

In the place of peace and rest

Fill my empty cup I pray

For with your Spirit, I am blessed.

Oasis in the desert

Abundant water for my soul

Flood me with your Holy Presence

Fill my heart and make me whole.

(Inspired by Isaiah 35:7)

The scorched land will become a pool
And the thirsty ground springs of water;
In the haunt of jackals, its resting place,
Grass becomes reeds and rushes.

Isaiah 35:7 (NASB)
