This post has been awarded 32 stars by 8 readers.

God, I’m out here in the desert
Looking for the Promised Land.
Let me move when I see you move,
And then stop at your command.

When you feed me with your manna,
Help me, Lord, to be content,
Lest I find myself in deep distress
And hasting to repent.

As you furnish bread from heaven,
What you give is just enough,
All I need and yet none wasted.
Can I really call that rough?

Lord, you know I love to wander,
And I have a thankless heart.
Give me grace, and show me mercy,
As you finish what you start.
