Can you say “Hallelujah,” and mean it
When you’re throat is parched from unquenched thirst?
Could Jesus, get a “Thank you!”
When everything you love appears to be cursed?
Are you able to worship
When everything on the inside hurts?
What about if you gave it your best
And nothing you tried works?
Would you remember that God is Sovereign,
Or would your praise be rehearsed?
The circumstances are unending
But so is His rule
Could it be that hardship is just a tool?
Used by Yahweh, illuminating the content of our hearts
Affliction has a way of revealing our strongest and weakest parts
Upon completion of establishing godly virtue
Intense pain will subside because it finished what it came to do
