Desert Song by Hillsong United

This song brought me to tears the first day hearing it in worship.  We all go through the proverbial desert one way or another, and I didn't really understand what others were going through until I was in the desert myself with intense loneliness, isolating emotions and what seemed like endless miles of dry sand in any direction.  But looking up and seeing the twinkling stars, and becoming acquainted with the Presence of God in the stillness, it became a place I treasured, because He was there with me. God is faithful, never leaving us, never forsaking us,  but transforming us into His image through to the other side.  2 Cor. 3:18

The Whisper - Devotional and Music on 1 Kings 19:11-13 by Crossbridge Ministries

This is one of our songs at, loosely informed by God's whisper to Elijah, (1 Kings 19:11ff) where God demonstrates to the prophet in his despair that the Lord is intimately identified, not in tornadoes, fires, and earthquakes but rather it was His whisper that caused Elijah to pull the cloak over his head.  God abides with us in mercy no matter what trouble we face, quiets us in His love, strengthens us through the storm, and changes us beyond our own expectations into people who know God and reach out to others.
