Worship While in Rehab

Early in my days at the recovery center, I used CDs to engage with the ladies during praise and worship. Even DVDs came In handy, too. But the ejecting and pushing play seemed distracting at times.

So these days, I carry my laptop and use a file with many songs, and I select different ones for our morning service.

There’s a new girl In rehab and she writes home to her mother about the new music she’s learning. Just last week, she wept at the lyrics of this one song. A song new to me. Maybe to you, too.

It’s called:  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

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

I will only sing your praise

There are more lyrics for the song and the words speaks to our brokenness and to our seeking hope. The plea in the song cuts at my soul like a knife to my heart especially when I witness how sad my girls are and how they truly are thirsty for Christ.

At different times, there are girls who sing solos and who have a gift for carrying a tune. They bring an element of praise in their offering of singing for us.

Even When it Hurts 

Listen to the song on the link above…

Even when it hurts. Praise God. I’m praying for a song to rise up in your soul, Ms. Pam
