Besides lifestyle, inspiration and travel, I write things that I don’t want to personally forget or something that I’m going through or went through. Basically they are things that make me human. Most of the time they are words that pierce deep into my soul that need to freely flow to my writing. Simply put, they are my Episodes of Grace.
I’m suppose to share something about 2 F’s today – food and friends. But for some reason after speaking to a friend this evening, a word kept on repeating in my heart. It’s the word OASIS. And I thought that it’s something that I need to process and inquire what it’s about.
And so the search begins…
I’ve never seen nor photographed an oasis before. (Now this is something I need to add to my travel bucket list.) That’s why I was really left intrigued by it. So first I had to make sure about its meaning. That’s when I consulted Merriam-Webster:
I was stunned because I really felt like I’m in a season of dry land right now. I literally feel like I’m in a desert. And in this vast land where anyone can be left dehydrated, exhausted and lost, one can also possibly find his own miracle. An oasis.
And while I was writing what I’m about to share below, I was thinking of all the people that are going through some desert in their life right now. Around the world, I know that there are a lot of people who are hurting, confused, sick, spiritually exhausted, mourning, and are questioning… “When is this ever going to end?”
Lord, I’m sick of this barren land,
My spirit’s been drenched with tears,
When I could no longer walk even a single step,
Walk with me to Your Oasis
Lord, my heart is so lost and in despair
Couldn’t navigate my way and what’s next
But I trust that you would bring me from this agonizing pain to rejoicing
I want to dance with you in the Oasis
Take me out from this grief,
I can no longer breath, I can no longer breathe on my own,
Be my Oasis, You are my Oasis
I can’t be separated from you
Now that I’ve tasted your goodness
Your water quenches my soul so deep
And your love solely completes my entire entity
You make me new, You made me new
Even amidst of this desert
Drenched with tears, fought some fears
You are my Oasis, You are my Oasis
You’re someone who’s been true
Through it all
You are my Oasis.
What are you going through today? We may not understand every thing right now and we might not know when is this going to end. But I hope that this short blog will encourage you today. One word gave me hope… And I also pray that you’ll find it… that you’ll find your own miracle in the desert. Your Oasis.
God needed to remind me today that I always have an Oasis in Him. His love found me, His love saved me through Jesus. He is indeed my Oasis. And He could be your Oasis too. ♡
