    Default The deserts edge

    You're standing on the edge of a desert
    On one side of you there's civilization
    Hotels restaurants etc
    And on the other side nothing but miles of desert
    Getting lost in it would surely lead to death

    You're fed up with your sinful life
    And you know that walking into the desert
    Would mean committing suicide
    But you don't want to go back to your old life
    You're desperate for change

    And if it's God's will
    You won't die
    But then
    It could be his will
    That you go this way
    Obviously it's not God's will for anyone to due
    Though it is God's will for all to live
    Die and face judgement

    That said you know that walking into the desert
    Would mean you'd be putting your trust in God
    He would either save you
    Or you would die
    If it was God's will for you to live
    You would be saved
    If he had a purpose and reason
    For you to carry on living
    You would be saved
    But if not
    Then he would take you home

    Right now I feel like
    Walking into the desert
    Saying God if it be your will
    For me to go this way
    Then I shall disappear here
    And never again will I offend you
    For you will take me home

    Yet if it's your will for me to live
    Even though I am this way
    Given over and lost in sin
    Then you will save me
    Then you have a purpose for my life

    If I could I would walk into the desert
    Not to test God
    But because it would mean
    I either meet my demise
    And get to go home
    Freed from these chains
    And made whole

    It would be like walking to God
    Surely if I get lost in the desert
    I would succumb to heat and hunger and thirst
    I would eventually give up the ghost
    And it would all be over

    And if it wasn't for my mom
    And my family
    I would walk out into the desert
    I would walk to God

    What do I do and where do I go
    When back at home
    My demons rap on my door
    Yet in the desert I am without
    That which causes me to sin
    It's just me and God
    I would either die and rest in peace
    Or be rescued and return back to my life
    Either way I would be liberated

    Oh desert where are you
    I want to walk into you
    I want to get lost in you
    I want to walk to God
    And hear what he has to say

    Aquaintenses of hubby when he was in the Jesus Movement decided God would stir their car no the highway.

    Big accident. Big stupidity.

    Don't tempt God. It has nothing to do with trusting him. It has everything to do with ego.

    Still woman, but no lady.

    And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Rom. 8:28

    Every worldly person who is converted by the gospel
    is at a fork in the road:
    you can continue on the same path to whatever, or
    you can trust in God to prove the gospel true.
    In 1996 I had to make that decision
    21 years later I'm glad I chose a new road to travel down

    for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
    1Corinthians 9:16

    Don't jump off any mountain cliffs for Jesus said to Satan's temptation "Do not test the Lord your God"

    You don't sound like you seek a desert so much as an oasis filled with life giving water that is hidden and away from temptation?

    If things in your life are causing you to sin,cut them off and toss them far from yourself.

    You don't have to walk in a desert that promises certain death.

    Find a mountaintop and go alone to pray where it is just you and God. Look at the world from above and see it as God does.

    Still lifting you up in prayer.
    Don't take my word for it. Search Scriptures for yourself!

    Acts 17:11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
