This morning I heard "Hallelujah". Whenever I hear it, everything in me wants to drop to my knees in worship or jump to my feet and raise my hands high.
Here are the lyrics: Hallelujah, hallelujah You are worthy, of our praise (repeat)
Be high and lifted up Be high and lifted up Be high and lifted up, Jesus
It's You we glorify It's You we're lifting high Your name be glorified
As I listen - if I truly let the words sink in and wash over me - they are cleansing to my soul. The words wash out the selfishness in me. The anger. The fear. The sadness. The anxiety. The critical spirit. The self-centeredness. The doubt. The despair. Because these words are not about me. They're all about Him. And sometimes I need to be reminded that life is not about me.
These words make me want to cry or scream or shout or weep or cheer. I want God's name to be glorified. I want to lift Him high....simply because He is worthy of our praise.
Take a few minutes and turn the music up. Forget everything around you and either get on your knees or jump to your feet.
