Last week I sat with a friend facing a heart breaking situation. She was looking for wise words and helpful advice, I was unable to give either.Instead we wept together in a little office with the door closed to the world. Sometimes there are no words that seem appropriate. We did manage to pray and handed over all the sadness to God.
When I got back home I sent her the words from an Amy Grant song – ‘Better Than a Hallelujah’.
We pour out our misery and God just hears a melody.
Beautiful the mess we are, the honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a hallelujah.
This Youtube video has the words and some lovely images. I have found peace in just listening to it as I pray. Maybe there is someone you know who needs you not to talk but sit with them.
Thank you, Amy Grant.
