Hurts like Hell

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

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

Lyrics from Hillsong United’s praise song “Even When It Hurts

DAY 43 of 50 Days of Gratefulness

Today, I am grateful for Hillsong United.

I am a proud Christian, but that doesn’t mean I am holy. That doesn’t mean my life has been all about blessings and accomplishments. It isn’t.

I’ve mentioned in several posts the struggles that I’ve been through, about my Tatay, my Nanay, my family’s financial woes and my journey towards my dream.

Life has never been easy, but ever since I was a child, I took comfort in songs.

I can remember how I cried out while singing every Sunday, for those seven long months when I’ve been failing every job interview and job exams. I can remember how I cried out begging God for my Tatay’s and even Nanay’s life.

Now, as I recall them, I am so grateful for the songs written not just for the happy days or blessings. I am grateful for Hillsong United’s songs that you can sing, even when it hurts.

  1. I’m happy music comforts you. Music means much to me. The lyrics of the Hillside song are wonderful. When I have no voice (no song, no words), then I’ll sing louder–that is inspiration! I don’t know that I know much about holiness, but I can with confidence that you are special. And God knows that. Thanks again!–Christopher
