Better than a Hallelujah

"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:15-16 (NIV)
"Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Selah" Psalm 62:8 (NIV)

Setting aside pride, control, fear and doubt, we need to bow at the cross and refuse to rise until the love and forgiveness and salvation that flows not only covers us but convinces us that He is real. 

Becoming overwhelmed with the simple grace of our God, with a heart that is broken for the relationship we have lost with Him, is the first step in humility that will ultimately bring us closer to Christ than ever before. 

Seeing for the first time that our imperfection and brokenness, even if it is for the hundredth time, are where God will be glorified most, giving all to Him so that He can be praised.

hmm... the player isn't working for me. I'm not sure why. But... I know this song and was actually listening to it. I actually wrote "Better than a Hallelujah sometimes" on the whiteboard on the refrigerator a few hours ago! It was stuck in my head and it's a beautiful song! =)

Be blessed!

The player worked for me! This is the first cd I've bought in a LONG time! Amy was the 1st Contemporary Christian artist I got hooked on. LOVE HER, even after all these years!

This is a beautiful song. Aren't we blessed that God wants our brokenness? Makes it so easy to praise Him.
