Blessed be your name

We sang this at church this morning
(disclaimer: this video is not our congregation singing it!);
I thought it worth repeating.

This week last year my beloved Goldie moved from my house to her new care home.
Less than two months later, she was dead.

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name
Matt Redman.

I don't know why.
I don't need to know why.
It is a difficult song to sing, but I mean every word.

We sang this at our church this morning ans I cried through it also. I totally understand you. Yes, I love God and am thankful for all even the difficult times because in the valleys I know I will grow.

Thank you for posting this song. We're sisters in more ways than one.

I'm grateful you were able to sing it today from your heart. Healing is good.
