Rivers in the Desert

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“[God] doesn’t want you to cling to [the past] anymore.
He has something new for you…”
*Priscilla Shirer
 
Lord, You have made a new way where
There was no way before,
Like rivers in the desert
Leading me to something more…
 
A spring here in the wilderness
Where barrenness once reigned.
But You’ve brought forth a miracle,
This desert to reclaim.
 
And You have called me here to see
This wonder You’ve begun,
A work in me You’ve promised to
Empower till it’s done.
 
All You require of me is that
I’m willing to obey –
To be part of the miracle
That You’ve begun this day.
 
 
“Do not remember the past events,
pay no attention to things of old.
Look, I am about to do something new;
even now it is coming. Do you not see it?
Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness,
rivers in the desert.”
Isaiah 43:18-19 HCSB

Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
