Desert Oasis

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“Therefore, behold, I will allure her,
Will bring her into the wilderness,
And speak comfort to her.”
Hosea 2:14 NKJV
Lord, draw me to that desert place;
Speak gently, there, to me.
For I desire to know Thee more,
To spend more time with Thee
There, in the desert, with naught else
To lure my mind away.
And in that solitude, my Lord,
I’ll listen as I pray;
That Thou mightest whisper to my heart
What Thou wouldst have me know.
For in the quiet, I will hear
The Words of Life, which flow
From Spirit unto spirit,
As Thou speakest, Lord, to me.
Then, in the desert, I’m refreshed
From time I’ve spent with Thee.
