Broken Hallelujah

There is a Christian song I love sung by The Afters called Broken Hallelujah.  It is my heart right now and I wanted to share the lyrics with you in case there is someone out there that is also singing with a broken hallelujah.  I am a firm believer that we still need to be thankful throughout our difficulties; but I will also be the first to admit that can be extremely hard!

Because we haven’t shared everything entirely with most people I am sure a lot of people are wondering all that is going on; but at this time we still have more questions than answers and in all honesty the answers we have received have broken our hearts.  The life we are living right this very minute with Hannah is worse than anything we could have imagined…..I would seriously rather go through 3 more open-heart surgeries than what we are dealing with right now.

Dennis and I are both at rock bottom, can barely stand and find it difficult to even pray.  We are struggling to find the words to lift to Heaven; but fortunately we serve a God that knows and can read our hearts.  He knows our petitions, our questions and our struggles and I do continuously offer Him my broken hallelujah because no matter how bad it seems, He has a plan.  A plan that I know nothing about; but He will be glorified through it all; that I can promise!

So, if you are struggling and have nothing left to give; I encourage you to go listen to this song.  Here are the words that speak so strongly to me right now.

 Broken Hallelujah

(Verse)
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.

(Chorus)
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.

(Verse)
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.

(Chorus)
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.

Until next time………
