Broken Hallelujah

Last night was definitely a "dark night", filled with hurt, anger, frustration, and fear. When the alarm went off this morning, I felt God pulling me to spend time with Him with no interruptions or expectations. Missing yet another day of work was not the responsible thing to do nor will it help with the already stressed-beyond-reason finances but I am so grateful that I paid attention to that tug on my heart.

I spent the majority of the day in prayer and reading one Scripture after another. I can't say that all is clearly defined and free of fear but there is definitely a sense of peace that I've been lacking. For this I am grateful!

Lisa W. graciously reminded me of Proverbs 3:5-6: "Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek HIS WILL in ALL you do, and HE WILL GUIDE your paths. "

This song seemed especially fitting tonight.

Broken Hallelujah sung by The Afters

I can barely stand right now.
Everything is crashing down,
And I wonder where You are.

I try to find the words to pray.
I don't always know what to say,
But You're the one that can hear my heart.

Even though I don't know what your plan is,
I know You're making beauty from these ashes.

I've seen joy and I've seen pain.
On my knees, I call Your name.
Here's my broken hallelujah.

With nothing left to hold onto,
I raise these empty hands to You.
Here's my broken hallelujah.

You know the things that have brought me here.
You know the story of every tear.
‘Cause You've been here from the very start.

Even though I don't know what your plan is,
I know You're making beauty from these ashes.

I've seen joy and I've seen pain.
On my knees, I call Your name.
Here's my broken hallelujah.

With nothing left to hold onto,
I raise these empty hands to You.
Here's my broken hallelujah.

When all is taken away, don't let my heart be changed.
Let me always sing Hallelujah
When I feel afraid, don't let my hope be erased
Let me always sing Hallelujah.
Let me always sing Hallelujah.

I will always sing
I will always sing
Here's my broken hallelujah.
