Knowing Him as I am known

The desert

A place of knowing and being known

My king has taken me to the desert

A lonely place

A dry place

I depend on Him

For all my needs

I am learning to trust Him in the desert

I am getting to know Him

The desert, a place where

I get to know Him as I am known

A lonely  and dry place

Just You and I Lord

Your name is faithful

My Lord and my God


Psalm 139: 1-6 (ESV)

O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
    you discern my thoughts from afar.
 You search out my path and my lying down
    and are acquainted with all my ways.
 Even before a word is on my tongue,
    behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
 You hem me in, behind and before,
    and lay your hand upon me.
 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
    it is high; I cannot attain it.

  1. I have been in many desert seasons of my life but my God is still faithful and good. And sometimes the pruning of the desert season is a necessary process. I think you depicted that well in your poem. 🙂 I hope you check out my blog. God bless. 🙂
