you make beautiful things out of dust

so, i have been struggling here lately with some internal issues of my own.... it always helps a little to blog about things when i am feeling this way, so i decided i would do just that... so anyway, i have been being very negative on myself because of several reasons, and then today, i just decided that it was time to come out of this funk, and turned on my favorite radio station JOYFM when I did, the song you make beautiful things out of dust was playing... This song really spoke revelations to me... Here are the words and then I will explain what I mean by it spoke to me...

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 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

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

so basically, here's what God spoke to me through this song, "GOOD COMES FROM BAD" this is so very true. I mean really, I totally believe that when he closes one door it is because he is preparing us for bigger and better things to come. However, I have slacked off on my spiritual walk and he is showing me that now... So, tomorrow, I will be going to church and attending womens in the evening. I can't wait because I miss the ladies so very much.

After that I got to where I was thinking bad thoughts about me. My weight, my eye, my hair, etc and I thought of this next song. It is by MercyMe and it is called beautiful. Again, here are the lyrics and then i will type a little about what the song said to me...

The days will come when you don't have the strength
When all you hear is you're not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart they'd see too much

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His
You're beautiful

I'm praying that you have the heart to find
Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight
For all the lies you've held inside so long
And they are nothing in the shadow of the cross

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His
You're beautiful

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious
Of all the earth and skies above
You're the one He madly loves
Enough to die

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
In His eyes

You're beautiful
You were meant for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're meant for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His

when listening to this song, God said, "Daughter, you are BEAUTIFUL! I am the one that matters and I say you are beautiful. Don't pay attention to the flesh! I gave my son for you and I love you!" after getting this message, I sat here and cried because I know that it is a word from my Abba. He is always right! and I am HIS!

so from this point forth, I am going to make a consience effort to show that I am his!!!!

(just a little note, amanda, if you are reading this, please give my girls a hug and kiss for me I MISS THEM THISSSSS MUCH!)
