Let the Lord be your Oasis in the desert.


Be my Oasis, Lord.
Satisfy my thirst.
Fill me up
to overflowing.

My journey through
the desert
has been long
and tiring.
I am dry.
I want to
rest in You –
in the shelter of Your
wings, in the
of Your hand.

I long for
living waters.
I know that
they will satisfy
every ounce
of my being.

Restore my life,
cleanse me,
make me pure.
Make me more
like You.
I need You
to be
my Oasis

The Desert

The Desert

Dry wilderness.
Barren land.
Dusty road.
Endless dunes.
Weak and thirsty.
Tired and scared.

Trekking on.
Trekking forward.
Into unknown territory.
Aimlessly wondering.

There’s struggle ahead
through the storm.

Stinging eyes.
Gasping for air.

Reaching for hope
is far away-
unless you let it rain.
