Crying, Giving & Training.

Just spent an accidental hour watching The Choir of Hard Knocks performing in the Sydney Opera House. If you’d walked into the TV room you would have seen me crying (although I believe the correct word for it in this instance would have been “sobbing”). God is absolutely amazing. In the weirdest ways he reminds me of His grace and love, and that he made all people in His image. Hallelujah.

And speaking of Hallelujah, it was that song that was the clincher.

Hallelujah – Rufus Wainwright

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty
in the moonlight
overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne,
she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah


Maybe I’ve been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah


There was a time you’d let me know
What’s real and going on below
But now you never show it to me do you?
Remember when I moved in you?
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah


Maybe there’s a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

On a praising God note.. how bout lift up some worship to Him by GIVING this Christmas in a unique way. I’m not sure, but there may still be time.. Check out JUSTGIFTS and give a gift that really means something.

Also.. Ever thought about being an officer? Why not sign up for what is tipped to be the biggest session in Australian Southern Territory History!! (I hear there will be more than 1000 cadets! Can you imagine?!)

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
