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!
