Broken Hallelujah

21:19:00 Karen Li 2 Comments

What if we lost everything. How would we respond? Can we worship, while we are in pain?

I want to be able to bring worship to the lord especially during these times of pain. It's a new low each time. Ever layer of my pride being slowly stripped away. This year, in it's 2 months, has already been such a trial for me. Having to sell off my possessions, having to skip meals because I didn't have money to put food on the table, having to accept that things won't be done according to my timing, being chased for deadlines, having people desert and disappoint me. It's been tough. There has been tears. But I know God is using these difficult experiences to really peel the old me away.
