I bet that title got your attention! What is Paul up to this time, what’s on his mind?
It’s true, it is really true! “I am so beautiful!” Ask my Father. He will tell you I am so beautiful. What trigger that thought A song of worship, a song of adoration, a song of surrender, a song of total abandonment.
It is one of the songs that is in my friend Luanne Hunt’s book “Moving God Moving Mountains” and was released in a CD. I had the privilege of listening to these songs and they indeed take you into the presence of our Father.
They share the heartbeat of God and focus you in on our Lord and Saviour. Listen to this with your heart when you read: “Ragged souls are yours, Brokenness you desire, As I sink into my suffering, You become much Higher I am beautiful, all in Pieces, You run to me,, I am so beautiful torn apart and drowning in my need.”
I can identify with this song, and this is just one portion, ragged souls, hurting souls, broken hearts, in pieces, no longer able to carry on, to move, sinking into our suffering and then looking up, allowing Him, the Lord to become much higher.
Though all in pieces and torn apart because of lifes battles, things that I did not understand, in that time of being torn apart within, when all seemed lost, He ran to me, drawing me in my need, lifting me up, he held me and cradled me in His arms and spoke to me and said: “You are beautiful my son, one of my chosen ones. My children are so beautiful to me, each one unique, each one so precious and I so want to love them, heal them and in this place of brokenness, in this place of despair, in this time of suffering, they are were I can reach them. I am here to restore them to that which I have created them for.”
Is that not awesome, does that not give you hope? That indeed you are beautiful, for when He is finished we will reflect the Lord.
We will reflect His presence, that as we die to self, He will arise within and that it will no longer be us that liveth, but Christ that lives in you, in me and we will then begin to reflect His character, His attitudes as we are conformed to Him.
That even in the times of suffering, of brokenness, we are being changed, we are becoming beautiful in Him!
