Testify to the Title

Why did I choose “Hallelujah Anyhow” as the name of my blog?

Several reasons actually...

  • I LOVE the song! If you have never heard the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir belt out this tune, then please take a few moments to watch the video at the bottom of this post. This testimony in song should make anyone stand and shout!
  • I LOVE the biblical accounts of the power of praise! The story of Paul and Silas is one of my favorites. Judah and King Jehoshaphat marching into battle with the praise team at the front line is another example of deliverance that teaches us a lesson.
  • I LOVE the Lord! Regardless of the circumstances, no matter how I am feeling at the moment, despite what I see with my eyes, or however silent is that still small voice...I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVES...and that one day I will see Him...face to face...
Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. 

Hebrews 13:15 AMP

We have to make a choice each and every day...

Live victoriously or live in defeat...

I think Charles Swindoll worded it nicely in this short article...

Our Attitudes
~Charles Swindoll~

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes."
