“O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing” is one of my favorite hymns. Thank you for this reminder to worship and be honest with God in our broken places.

Yes, we must be rooted in scripture to make it through each day.

Yes to all this! Sometimes my most broken times have been when I finally was able to worship Him properly – it took honesty and telling what was going on in my heart. Once I gave it to Him – He set me free from it.

Exactly what our Loving Father wants from us humble honesty before Him so that He might fill us to overflowing with His sweet presence! Oh for the grace to more quickly be honest in our brokenness!

I know that hollow feeling. I don’t know exactly how to describe it. Sometimes borders on cynical, like, I can’t sing these words and really mean them. But you’re right, the truth of God’s Word and the promises that He’s made to us are the only true comfort that we have. I’m sorry that you lost your daughter, but I am encouraged by your faith displayed throughout your sorrrow.

I’ve been there too, Rebekah, where I “can’t sing the words and really mean them”. So thankful for a God far bigger than my doubts, who is ready to be steadfast and true in the wake of my own unbelief. How faithful He is!

I am so sorry for your loss. We lost a son several years ago and it changes your perspective on so many things. I am glad you are finding solace in His word.

I think some of most heartfelt worship happened when I was the most broken. I felt communion and His presence greatly then.
It is so comforting to know that we can never be too broken for Him! Thank you for encouraging us!

What an incredible God to be able to use brokenness to bring us into intimacy with Him!

Sometimes one of our pastors will give us a little background on the writers of the old hymns we sing on a particular Sunday. There are some interesting stories there.

Agree! The song becomes richer when we know the backstory

This is so beautiful! We all have a broken place that needs mending that only God can give.
