Monday Melody - My Desire
When I saw Jeremy Camp in August, the last song he played was called "My Desire". I had never heard this song before, but I loved it so much that on my way home from the concert I actually stopped and bought the album "Restored", where this song can be found.
For me, it's interesting to look at Jeremy's albums in terms of his story. I see myself in his songs. Having walked a similar path, I can't listen to "I Still Believe" without tearing up. Some days, I'm feeling "Restored". Others, I am blasting "Take My Life" - which I love for its raw, angst filled cry to God. But the song that I most identify with currently is "My Desire".
Last weekend was the first of this season's "Girlfriend Getaway" conferences. For this year's tour, I am the host. More importantly though, part of this year's message includes a 10 minute video of my testimony. I watched it before they showed it, and I cried. And then when we showed it in the session, I cried some more. But before I left for the conference, I put on "My Desire" and I just prayed that song. I prayed that God would use my story, my words, my tears - all of it, for His glory. Because this is my desire...to be used by You.
