In Case You've Forgotten: Beautiful Things

I want to follow up the last post with something that's difficult to learn, but wonderful to receive when you finally allow yourself to receive it...

No matter what you've done, how deep of a hole you're in, who you've become, what you've endured YOU CAN BE MADE NEW.  Your life can change.  You can find joy and peace.  HE MAKES BEAUTIFUL THINGS OUT OF US!

Here's a song.  I feel like someone needs to hear it and make it the soundtrack of their lives.  Is it you?

All this pain
I wonder if I'll ever find my way
I wonder if my life could really change at all.

All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found?
Could a garden come up from this ground at all?

You make beautiful things.
You make beautiful things out of the dust.
You make beautiful things.
You make beautiful things
out of us.

All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground.
Out of chaos life is being found
in You.

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust.
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things
Out of us.

You make me new.
You are making me new!
You make me new.
You are making me new!

He makes all things new.....even you, dear one.  Even me.  Even us.
