Darkness Praise #1: Broken Hallelujah

I've found that offering even "broken hallelujahs" and "shattered praise" still keeps me pointing to, focused on, and trusting in a Sovereign God...

"Broken Hallelujah" by Mandisa

With my love and my sadness
I come before You Lord
My heart's in a thousand pieces
Maybe even more

Yet I trust in this moment
You're with me somehow
And You've always been faithful
So Lord even now

When all that I can sing 
Is a broken hallelujah
When my only offering
Is shattered praise
Still a song of adoration
Will rise up from these ruins
And I will worship You and give You thanks
Even when my only praise
Is a broken hallelujah

Oh Father, You have given
Much more than I deserve
And I have felt Your hand of blessing
On me at every turn

How could I doubt Your goodness
Your wisdom, Your grace
Oh Lord hear my heart
In this painful place


Hallelujah x2
I lift my voice
Your Spirit moves
I raise my hands
I reach for You

    Wow. I hadn't heard this song and it is speaking to my heart as I listen to it. This past year all of my Hallelujahs have been broken. Praying that this year I allow myself to reach for God more and cling to Him.

    Blessed to know this music met your heart in a personal way! And a hug coming your way as well!!

    I believe that even our broken Hallelujahs honor and praise Him! Sometimes I wonder if He isn't even more honored, as it is those times that seem to be most difficult to do so! YES! Reach for God more and cling to Him! Even if it's a white knuckled grip... grip nonetheless!!! {HUGS}
