We sang the following song at Crossroads Church in Cottage Grove, MN off and on for a few week earlier this year. This song is infectious. Hours after singing the song and the song was still resonating in my head. And if you haven’t heard of them, Desperation Band is worth giving a listen to!

Counting on God

VERSE 1
I’m in a fight not physical
And I’m in a war
But not with this world
You are the light that’s beautiful
And I want more
I want all that’s Yours

PRE-CHORUS
Joy unspeakable that won’t go away
And just enough strength
To live for today
So I never have to worry
What tomorrow will bring
‘Cause my faith is on solid rock
I am counting on God

CHORUS
I am counting on
I am counting on God

BRIDGE
The miracle of Christ in me
Is the mystery that sets me free
I’m nothing like I used to be
Open up your eyes you’ll see

Desperation Band <–Click here to hear this song/album on Amazon.com! From Desperation Online:

DESPERATION IS THE UNITED EFFORTS OF THE STUDENT MINISTRIES AT NEW LIFE CHURCH. WE BELIEVE THAT THE LOCAL CHURCH IS GOD’S CHOSEN VEHICLE FOR CREATING CHANGE. CHANGE HAPPENS LOCALLY. IT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE ACT WHERE THEY ARE WITH WHAT THEY HAVE. CHANGE HAPPENS GRADUALLY. IT OCCURS WHEN PEOPLE DO A SERIES OF LITTLE THINGS WELL OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.

DESPERATION IS ALL ABOUT STUDENTS BEING CHANGED BY THE PRESENCE OF GOD. AND CREATING CHANGE WHERE THEY ARE BY PLUGGING INTO THEIR LOCAL CHURCH AND STAYING FAITHFUL. THIS IS A GENERATION IN DESPERATE PURSUIT OF GOD: THIS IS A YOUTH MOVEMENT FOR LOCAL CHURCHES. TOGETHER, LETS MAKE OUR LIVES DEFINED BY FAITH AND FAITHFULNESS. AND WE CAN SPREAD SALVATION AROUND THE WORLD. COME ON. IT’S TIME.
