Put It On The Alter

Standard

Yesterday I was feeling a little low and frazzled and remembered the CD a friend and coworker made me. I turned it on and the first song was Put It On The Alter by Jessica Reedy. The lyrics really resonated with me:

  • It’s been a real hard couple of months, you had enough (mm hmm)
  • But it’s been hard for everyone, you’re not alone, (uh uh)
  • You’ve been hurting way too long, let it go and just move on
  • Make your way down to the altar, hand it over and leave it there
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • So everything that you’ve been worried about (put it on the altar)
  • You need him to work it out, he’ll work it out yeah (put it on the altar)
  • All of your burdens just bring them all down and (put it on the altar)
  • You’re gonna get an answer to your prayer,
  • If you (put it on the altar)
  • I know you need a healing (yeah) you sick of being sick, you need relief
  • You’re tired of the pressure (yeah)
  • You got all this stress and you need some peace
  • Come on and get your breakthrough (breakthrough)
  • Or haven’t you been suffering long enough?
  • Make your way down to the altar, hand it over, leave it there
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • So everything that you’ve been worried about (put it on the altar)
  • You need him to work it out, he’ll work it out yeah (put it on the altar)
  • All of your burdens just bring them all down and (put it on the altar)
  • You’re gonna get an answer to your prayer,
  • If you (put it on the altar)
  • Oh (oh yes you’ll get an answer)
  • You’ll get an answer (answer from the lord)
  • Oh yes (oh yes you’ll get an answer)
  • You’ll get an answer (answer from the lord)
  • So you need to put it on, put it on, put it on (put it on the altar)
  • So you need to put it on, put it on, put it on (put it on the altar)
  • Oh prayer (oh prayer) changes (changes things)
  • see I know it does (oh prayer changes things)
  • So take it to the lord in prayer (prayer changes things)
  • Ask him anything you want cause (prayer changes things)
  • Listen, you’ve been worrying and crying
  • Crying and worrying
  • But you’re not alone, you’re not alone no
  • See you have a friend in Jesus, and he knows all about it
  • And he’s gonna do what he promised you
  • So everything that you’ve been worried about (put it on the altar)
  • You need him to work it out, he’ll work it out yeah (put it on the altar)
  • All of your burdens just bring them all down and (put it on the altar)
  • You’re gonna get an answer to your prayer,
  • If you (put it on the altar)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • It’s gonna be alright (it’s gonna be alright)
  • So you need to put it on, put it on, put it on (put it on the altar)
  • So you need to put it on, put it on, put it on (put it on the altar)

Also yesterday I pondered about the dry season in life that I am going through. I had an earnest talk with God. I even googled “living through a personal dry season” to see how others deal with it and stumbled across an awesome blog. This morning I received an email from the Osteens and I’m sure you already know the topic, lol. I am so thankful that God hears and cares about my lamenting and makes sure to find a way to let me know He is listening. Coincidence? Nah, I don’t think so!

  1. Jerome, my Jazzercise instructor, used to be a minister. He treats our class like church-community. Look after people, check in, make sure you talk to someone, etc. His big one is, leave your troubles outside the door, if you still want them when we’re done, you can pick them back up again.

    I think it’s good that you’re seeking ways to move forward and reaching out to community. You have a good friend to plant that song in your life.

    May everything go as you need it to.

  2. I try to leave my troubles at the door as well. I used to tell tell my students to put their attitudes in their back pocket and pull it out only when necessary. Lol, for some reason , they loved that imagery.
