Even When It Hurts

What do you do when life is really hard? When it hurts? When you feel like your strength is lost? When the tears won’t stop? When you don’t know if you can go another day or face another trial?

I’m still listening to the Hillsong Empire CD and I just can’t get enough! While I love the ‘Say the Word‘ song I shared a few weeks ago, this song, ‘Even When It Hurts’, really speaks to my heart too. Life has been really tough over the past 3.5 years. Really hard. But, despite the difficulties, I continue to praise Him! Even when it hurts, I’ll praise Him. Despite what difficulties you face, it’s ok to have bad days, but it is what you do with your attitude on those bad days that matters. The choice is yours. Choose to praise Him until the miracle comes!

I hope this song blesses you today! If you get a chance, check out the full CD!

Even When It Hurts

Take this fainted heart
Take these tainted hands
Wash me in Your love
Come like grace again

Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trial
Come like hope again

Even when the fight seems lost
I’ll praise You
Even when it hurts like hell
I’ll praise You
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

And my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing till the morning has come

Lord my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing till the miracle comes

I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Even when the morning comes
I’ll praise You
Even when the fight is won
I’ll praise You
Even when my time on earth is done
Louder then I’ll sing your praise

I will only sing Your praise

    and it definitely hurt yesterday. it was the 4th month anniversary of my daddy’s death and just one of those days when it all went wrong. i thought i did a great job on my video and someone didn’t like it. just lots of things that hurt but i just had to remember my blessings.

    I love the line, “Even when it’s hard to find the words. Louder then I’ll sing Your praise?” I always choke up during that part. When things are hard, your faith grows in way you’d never imagine. Man, God is so awesome!

    I am a true believer, that if we “Choose to praise Him until the miracle comes”, the miracle will come. Life comes at us hard sometimes, even crippling and disabling us, but even then we can praise Him for carrying us through it. Our praise in the bad times not only benefits us, but it also blesses those around us, and testifies of His love for us. Thank you for sharing your heart with us all. Praying a very special blessing for you today.

    So good. And so useful in every season. I’ve been studying/meditating on 1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 lately. It is God’s WILL for us to REJOICE. Always. In every season. Easier said than done but so good!

    LOVE love love… Thank you so much for sharing! I am way behind on new music this year (which is something I am usually 100% on top of), so I will definitely have to look this album up. When will iTunes come up with a function to alert me to my favorite artists’ new albums? Or does that already exist and I’ve just somehow missed it… Thanks friend!

    These moments are when our faith is truly tested. WILL we praise him when it hurts? What a beautiful reminder.

    Just think how lucky you are that you can praise Him during the hard times. So many people are just left with despair. And you don’t have that. You have His promise and it will get you through. Cling to that. His light will shine.

    Thanks for this post. In my life when things have been “easier”, it was harder to remember God’s goodness, but when things are harder, it has been easier to praise him for the smaller things.

    This year I felt like I had so many ‘unfinished business ‘ with my faith, I wanted to volunteer in my Children’s Church department but I got caught up last year and it never happened. But this year in February I went and volunteered finally. It has helped me in my faith in more ways than one. I only feel complete when I’m in his presence, nothing else measures. This year has been really difficult for me, work, school and relationships has been topsy turvy, but through it all… I come back to His word and it remains the same. It doesn’t ever change, even when I do. I become entitled and caught up in my feelings, His promises are still the same.
    Everyday I need His help, but this song, the whole album puts it all in perspective for me, ‘Touch The Sky’ is my go to song.
    When the world starts to pull me down, I know one thing; ‘I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground’.
    Thank you!

    ❤️❤️❤️ If that doesn’t show up right, it was 3 hearts. That’s how much I love this. Have you heard “Touch the Sky” on that same album? It’s my current repeater.
