Where Silence Flows – Revelation 19:6

Where Silence Flows – Revelation 19:6

Where silence flows
My darkness grows
Longing to be found
Believing for the sound
Of thunder and more
Rushing water’s roar
Proclaiming of His name
Bringing for His reign
Bringing light to this life
Where fear runs rife
Setting free a chained heart
One so torn apart
And I stand free of the pains
Hallelujah, our God reigns

Verse of the Day – Deuteronomy 11:13-15

Deuteronomy 11:13-15

Deuteronomy 11:13-15

After the events of Thursday, I think I really need to read this today.

HALLELUJAH by FUTURE OF FORESTRY
Adonai, here your beauty dwells
Adonai, for life

Hearts unfold before you
In the light of the sun
Fill the sky Adonai

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Let my spirit sing sweetly
For the love in your eyes
Hold me close, Adonai

 

Verse of the Day – Psalm 30:10-12

Psalm 30:10-12

Psalm 30:10-12

The Lord has been so merciful to me, so many times has he removed my tears of pain and replaced them with songs of joy.

HALLELUJAH by KIDS IN THE WAY
I’m sick and tired of watching over you.
Never knowing what you’re gonna do.
Every step you take is closer and closer to falling far away.
What’s it gonna take, what’s It take to make you see.

If it all came down tonight.
Safe from the losing fight.
Just know I only want to hear you say

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
He’s alive in me today.

Everyday you search for something new.
You turn your back on things that make you choose.
And every time you do, you’re closer and closer to falling far away.
What’s it gonna take, what’s it take to make you see

If it all came down tonight.
Safe from the losing fight.
Just know I only want to hear you say.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
He’s alive in me today.

 

I Will Sing It

I Will Sing It

When all I have left
Is my hallelujah
I will sing it

When my ships have all set sail
And I stand alone
Upon this endless shore
And a silence falls
A night slowly rises
When all I have left
Is my hallelujah
I will sing it

When gradual waves of a rising tide
Slowly erodes my shores
And here I stand before the storm
In fear of slipping to the depths
And my soul be drained of air
When all I have left
Is my hallelujah
I will sing it

No matter how broken
No matter how frail
I will sing it

No matter how lonely
No matter how painful
I will sing it

When all I have left
Is my hallelujah
I will sing it

Finally A Reason To Celebrate

Finally a bit of a reason to celebrate today, after all it’s been a pretty miserable January so far, this virus that I picked up before Christmas is now into its seventh week, with no real signs that it’s going away. It not as bad as it was over Christmas and New Year, but the cough persists and the on and off eye soreness is still making life a drag.

Having said that, there was a bright point yesterday at work when one of my customer’s said he thought I was only 28, that did make my day, as he refused to believe I was actually 41. I’m not sure I really look 13 years younger than I actually am, but for just a while it made me feel young again.

On to today and of course it is deadline day for tax returns here in the UK, I’ve been trying to get mine entered online all week, I somehow always manage to leave it until the last week, I finally got around to it last night, but couldn’t find the paperwork with my login details, I went through all my paperwork over and over again last night and still couldn’t find it, this afternoon I gave it one last try before requesting it to be sent again (which would also mean a £100 fine for late submission), finally I found it and got my details entered.

Then after a number of phone calls to a number of different department, none of which seems to know what the next is doing, it was confirmed that I have finally paid off the tax bill which has been outstanding for a number if years, in fact the Tax man owes me some money back.

At one point, as a result of my drinking and inability to sort my life out, I managed to accrue a tax bill of almost £8000 which I had no way off paying back, even to the point they sent in the bailiffs to seize goods (fortunately I had nothing of value and they didn’t take anything). I came to an arrangement of paying them an agreed sum each month, which at times has been a real millstone around my neck. Even when I started my job, after being taxed on my earnings the first thing that came out of my account was this additional payment to the tax man, some months all my earnings were gone within a week of payday, the rest of the month was a real struggle, it became a little easier when I stopped drinking, but it has still been a struggle over the last few years, there have been times I’ve been in total despair over the situation.

I still have a number of other debts, but all are under payment schedules and none as onerous as this tax bill, but as I say they are being managed.

So I’ve celebrating this evening by taking my daughter to see Big Hero 6, which we both thoroughly enjoyed.

Hopefully now as tomorrow morning brings a new month, this year can really kick start for me, it seems like it’s been a real long hard struggle through January, a month I had big plans for, which through one thing and another never materialized, maybe now I can begin moving forward once again.

HALLELUJAH by JAKE HAMILTON
I heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the LORD
all I want is to play that music for You
it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall, the major lift
and all I sing is a broken hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

I know that there is a God above
that is all I’ve ever known of love
to see His Son there broken, beaten, for me
so while we’re here let’s sing this song
I want you all to sing along
let’s raise a cry, let’s raise a hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

In the still and quiet place
I still can feel His warm embrace
although I know the storms they rage around me
to live your dream is quite the cost
just don’t look back, and don’t get lost
my offering is a broken hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
