Desert Soul by Rend Collective

On a previous post, I mentioned a song had brought me to tears at a crowded bookstore. I had been listening to Desert Soul by Rend Collective when this happened. I’ve been playing this song on repeat for weeks, and I’m still overcome with emotion nearly every time.

It speaks to me because after walking with the Lord for so many years, it’s easy to become complacent.  We go through the motions of being a good and obedient Christian. We attend church regularly, we tithe and we even serve, but how often do we really cry out to Him.  I’ll admit that I’ve been through seasons when my faith has been on fire, and others still when my faith has been asleep.

I don’t want to be asleep. Without Him, I am nothing but dry bones.

When I hear this I think of Ezequiel in the valley of the dry bones:

“The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.”

Ezekiel 37:1-4 NIV

It is my prayer that through this series the breath of the Lord will move and bring back to life these dry bones of mine, and maybe also yours. That he will spark an unbearable need for worship, that we may cry out for His fellowship, in desperation.

All that I am is dry bones
Without You, Lord, a desert soul
I am broken, but running
Towards You, God, You make me whole
I am a desert soul without You, Lord

Lord I come to you as the dry bones in Ezequiel’s time. Breathe on me that I may live! Set my faith on fire.

  1. Hi, I’m visiting from Write 31 Days. I think we posted next to each other on the Facebook group with very similar topics. This is a great song- I like other Rend Collective songs but I didn’t know this one so it’s good to be introduced to it. Look forward to seeing what other songs you write about this month.

    1. Hi Lesley, yes we did post at almost the same time. Glad you enjoyed the song! I’m a big fan of Rend Collective so you will be seeing more of their songs on this series. I look forward to checking yours out!

  2. If this posts twice I’m sorry about that, I’m not a fan of’s commenting system when it comes to accessibility, and I love discus!!
    I love worship! I’m the one that always dances in my church. Yesterday a lady brought her grand daughter up to me, and she was watching me dance! So naturally, I love worship music! I’m thinking about doing a series like this!

    1. I’m one of those people that dance too! David danced in worship, so why shouldn’t we? I’d love to see what you’d share in a series like this ??

  3. Hi Tatiana! I can SO identify with your comment about becoming complacent! I have often prayed to avoid lukewarm beliefs and uninspiring faith for my entire family. I love your honesty and vulnerability sharing yor heart here, it too makes me cry and strive to always hear the words of the Lord! Visiting from BlessedMOMdays Link up, so glad I found your blog! Be blessed!
