Finding Your Hallelujah

When was the last time you had a hallelujah moment. These moments create a sudden pause and they feel like a surprise, a gift and a celebration all in one. They are simple moments.  Moments when you arrive safely at home or maybe it is when you finally finish a project.  They are big moments. Moments when you catch a glimpse of eternal life.

Andy Grammer sings a song called “Good To Be Alive.” My favorite line is, “I think I finally found my hallelujah!” That is how it usually feels when you find it. It seems elusive until suddenly you find yourself saying HALLELUJAH! (It also means Praise the Lord in Hebrew.)

In a moment of total frustration this week, I heard Grammer’s song and decided I was going on a Hallelujah Hunt. It sounded more fun than being frustrated. Here is what I found.

  • HALLELUJAH–I finally cleaned out a bedroom (by pulling everything out of it first) and successfully brought order to the chaos. Unused toys were donated, selves were organized and we waved good-by to a Barbie house as it moved to a 3-year-olds house!
  • HALLELUJAH—I saw a prayer ANSWERED! I had prayed for it, through it, around it and it was answered. It was amazing, exciting and amazing.
  • HALLELUJAH—I experienced a FULL nights sleep. (Sometimes it’s the simple things.)
  • HALLELUJAH—A child was healed by the miracle of modern medicine and came home!
  • HALLELUJAH—A dear friend who I invited to join a church thirteen years ago was ordained as a pastor this week.

Let’s just say that my hunt has been successful. Very successful! Hallelujah! And my total frustration seems so silly compared to everything else.

There are many reasons to praise the Lord during our weeks. Jesus is active and present in small ways and big ones. The Holy Spirit is always guiding and directing. God continues to co-create this world along side us. Though we cannot fully see all of these moments, we experience them.

Take some time to pause and reflect on your week. What were your hallelujah moments? Then prepare for a hallelujah hunt for next week. Invite your family to join you on the hunt. Keep your eyes open and position yourself in the place of most potential…in the presence of God.

    O my soul, praise God!
All my life long I’ll praise God,
    singing songs to my God as long as I live.

Psalm 146: 1-2

From Our Happy Tent to Yours,

Meredith Bell
