Has your love run dry?
A flower under the desert sky
Withered before your eyes
Have your flood walls failed?
Built so high still the storm prevailed
And the water rises to your soul

If you’re a ship and you’re lost in the ocean
I’ll be the wind in your sails give you motion
I will guide you home
If you’re too far out that you can’t see the shoreline
I’ll be the light house shining in the night time
I will guide you home

Is your compass wrong?
Misplaced trust for far too long
Off track and you can’t get back
Did you lose your calm?
You’re not sure where but you know it’s gone
It’s a sad, sad song playing in your soul

When the night is long
When the storm is strong
I will guide you
I will guide you home

Walking the beach 4 A.M.
Listening to the waves as they crash upon the sand
It’s just a black sea
The moonlight and me

It’s sink or swim
I’m drowning within you
Somebody rescue me
‘Cause I’m going against the stream

I fell in love with somebody like you
And I know yeah that you wanted me to
You told me who I was
But I don’t want to
No, I don’t want to
I don’t want to
I don’t want to drown

Thinking about these words
How do they fit and how do they come together?
What do they mean?
Once again, I’m alone and it’s just me

When I wander through the desert
And I’m longing for my home
All my dreams have gone astray
When I’m stranded in the valley
And I’m tired and all alone
It seems like I’ve lost my way

I go running to your mountain
Where your mercy sets me free

You are my strong tower
A shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting King
You are my strong tower
A fortress when I’m weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I seek

In the middle of my darkness
In the midst of all my fear
You’re my refuge and my hope
When the storm of life is raging
And the thunder’s all I hear
You speak softly to my soul

The long awaited rains have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
And carved their way to where the wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rain I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah
My heart is racing and my knees are weak as I walk to the edge
I know there is no turning back once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice that’s telling me it’s time to take the leap of faith
So here I go

I’m diving in, I’m going deep
In over my head I wanna be
Caught in the rush, lost in the flow
In over my head I want to go
The river’s deep, the river’s wide
The river’s water is alive
So sink or swim, I’m diving in

There is a supernatural power in this mighty river’s flow
It can bring the dead to life and it can fill an empty soul
And give our heart, the only thing worth living and worth dying for, yeah
But we will never know the awesome power of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away iInto this holy flood
So if you’ll take my hand, we’ll close our eyes and count to three and take the leap of faith
Come on, let’s go

The Most Colorful River In The World The river shown in the photographs is the Caristales, which is located near the town of La Macarena in Colombia , South America .
The river, world famous for its colorful display, has been called: “the river that ran away to paradise”, “the most beautiful river in the world” and “the river of five colors”.
During Colombia ‘s wet season, the water flows fast and deep, obscuring the bottom of the river and denying the mosses and algae that call the river home the sun that they need. ┬áDuring the dry season there is not enough water to support the dazzling array of life in the river. But during a brief span between the wet and dry seasons, when the water level is just right, the many varieties of algae and moss bloom in a dazzling display of colors Blotches of Amarillo , blue, green, black and red – and a thousand shades in between – coat the river.
The part of the river where the colorful blooms occur is quite isolated and is not accessible by road. Adventurous tourists can now fly into La Macarena and then make their way to to the river site on foot as part of guided tours. The site was effectively closed to tourists for several years because of guerrilla activity in the region along with concerns about the impact of unregulated tourist traffic. However, the site was re-opened to visitors in 2009. So far, some 1,000 people have visited Caristales, including around 100 foreign tourists. The tours will follow four clearly marked and authorized paths and one is no longer permitted to stay overnight or cook, as this was ruining the area previously.
God’s paint brush is truly at work here!
