Here is the song: Gungor “You Make Beautiful Things”
I love, love, love this song. It is very prayer, worship full. One you just want to close your eyes, nod your head to the beat, and just breathe deep the grace of God.
This morning I heard Phoebe (my oldest) singing this song downstairs. Her sweet little girl voice drifting up. She had her headphones in (this song is on her Ipod shuffle) laying in her bed, just newly awake, repeating the chorus, “You make me new, you are making me new, you make beautiful things, you make beautiful things out of us.”
I don’t know if she purposely chose this song to listen to when she first awoke, or if it just happened that way. But what a wonderful way to awake! Can you imagine if we all started our day this way? With the beautiful, the grateful, and newness of life in Christ in our hearts and minds? She came up stairs today refreshed, smiling, and peaceful. She filled her brain, heart, and eyes with goodness and you could see it spilling into her morning.
She is FULL. And of GOOD things.
Oh, to have that beautiful fullness of Christ all the time. That truly is beautiful. Because God did create us beautiful, His world is beautiful. His love is beautiful.
Today I will follow her lead and be full in Christ..
