Straight from Heaven

The Lord's timing for showing me this song could not have been better. I have played it probably 20 times (NOT JOKING) in the past 24 hours. It is totally my heart right now. I love God's timing. He literally met me in my need, in my tears, and blessed me with, what I feel, is a "tangible" object of His love. When hope feels far away, He gives gifts like this. He sees our tears and mourns with us because He is our Father!! He doesn't like to see His children hurting. He sees our victories and triumphs, our laughter, and smiles. Our God is the reason I'm here today. The reason I can find joy in disappointing or hard circumstances. The reason I have hope.

Wanted to post the lyrics and the youtube video so y'all could hear it. Go down to the music and pause it so you can hear the video.

Verse 1:
This is my prayer in the desert
And all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a God who provides

Verse 2:
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames

And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Verse 3:
And this is my prayer in the battle
And triumph is still on it's way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand

All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

Verse 4:
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be empited again
The seed I've recieved I will sow
