You know that feeling you get when you’ve been working on a problem for a long time, and then you figure out the answer? That Eureka moment when something just out of reach becomes clear?
When that happens, don’t you just feel like saying “thank you, God!”?
Yep, that’s what this song is all about. Thanking Him for the little “breakthroughs” that happen in daily life 🙂
I don’t recall anymore the exact situation that led to the composition of this song. Like many songs, I came up with half the idea about a decade ago, at a music camp. Most likely the situation had something to do with a friend of mine who was suffering through a life-threatening illness at the time, and I was trying to think up ways to support her.
Either way, I hit a breakthrough over a small problem (well, it seemed small in light of my friend’s bigger problem…*) and I suddenly felt a rush of thankfulness to God for caring enough to help me solve even the small issues in life.
*she’s healthy and well now, in case you’re wondering 🙂
Hallelujah, breakthrough! Praise God, thank You!
All this time the answer’s here before my face
Hallelujah, breakthrough! Praise God, thank You,
Gracious God for helping me to solve this case
All this time I couldn’t solve my problem, but you nudged me and gave me a clue
I know this is not a massive deal, but whatever would I do without you?
You don’t only care about big problems, you are with me in the small ones too
Showing that you care about the details, thank you, God and praise you too.
(repeat 1st verse)
