Hallelujah - writing while listening to music!

I was just writing a scene in one of my new books - a scene of devastation where an evil army had burned and destroyed a small town in response to them housing a renegade prince. In the middle of the scene, the song Hallelujah came on youtube. It was hauntingly fitting as I wrote of the hollow town, twisted bodies, and burned out buildings. But off in the distance a child's cry was heard - as the song reached its crescendo. And in both my book and the song a new hope arose. Someone was still alive - could there be more?

I think in life also sometimes we go through so much pain and difficulty, but in the end there is always hope. if we look forward rather than backwards we can do better, be better, rise up to fight once more, and find hope and good things in life.

The last verse of Hallelujah is: I did my best, it wasn't much I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you And even though it all went wrong I'll stand before the Lord of Song With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah.

I realize that there are different beliefs out in the world today - and that is fine. But I think we all hope and reach for something better in our lives and in the future.

For me, at this Christmastime of year I declare Hallelujah to my Lord of all, my Savior Jesus Christ.
