A Minor Flub Up With Good Consequences


Lastnight I went to bed late in an exhausted stupor with chemistry equations and physics applications running through my mind. I hurriedly set my alarm knowing that I had a early morning coming and when my head hit the pillow I would be out. I didn't think about the fact that I had changed cds and so I didn't change the song number that would play to wake me up this morning. I got a welcome surprise. This was the song. It talks about how God can see everything. He holds the stars, he mends broken things, he knows everything, he sees the good in the bad and sets us free from the things that hold us captive. The chorus asks God to help her to sing Hallelujah through whatever is in front of her. But then she says a very important part "I'll choose." It's our choice to sing through our day or be miserable. It's a choice. Choose to let him help you. He's there...just waiting...

Who can hold the stars
And my weary heart?
Who can see everything?

I've fallen so hard
Sometimes I feel so far
But not beyond your reach

I could climb a mountain
Swim the ocean
Or do anything
But it's when you hold me
That I start unfolding
And all I can say is

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Whatever's in front of me
Help me to sing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Whatever's in front of me
I'll choose to sing hallelujah

The same sun that
Rises over castles
And welcomes the day

Spills over buildings
Into the streets
Where orphans play

And only you can see the good
In broken things
You took my heart of stone
And you made it home
And set this prisoner free

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Whatever's in front of me
Help me to sing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Whatever's in front of me
I'll choose to sing hallelujah

(Bethany Dillon-Hallelujah)
