I’ve shared before that one of the things I do to make cleaning and housework more enjoyable is to listen to some good music. I especially love to listen to hymns or praise music. Hillsong United is one of my favorites, so I was very glad to get the opportunity to preview their brand new album, Empires, before it was available for purchase!
This CD features more of the praise and worship music that we’ve come to love and expect from Hillsong United.
My personal favorite so far on this CD is “Even When It Hurts (Praise Song).” It is a beautiful song about bringing a sacrifice of praise to the Lord regardless of what you’re going through. As someone who struggles with depression, this is something that I can relate to. Trusting the Lord and seeking His face and praising Him even when it hurts…and He will sustain.
His grace is sufficient and He will sustain you through whatever you’re going through.
- Here Now (Madness)
