Something Beautiful

Always, always, always, always, always do what you are afraid to do.” 


 
I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.[a] 12 Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will answer you.13 (A)You will seek me, and you will find me because you will seek me with all your heart.
 
     ~ Jeremiah 29:11-13
Dear Ones,
I heard the tail end of this song yesterday, and knew it was a part of today’s devotional.
“He’s gonna take all the broken pieces
And make something beautiful like only He could
So put it all in the hands of the Father
Give it up, give it all over to
The only one who can turn it into
Something beautiful”
     We are all in situations of one sort or another.  We see the pieces, we cannot see the whole.  We rant and rave and lose our composure and wonder, “What good can come from this?”  After you read and possibly memorize the verse of this song, listen to the music.  So up beat, so helpful, such a good reminder of the plans that God has for you.
Lord, here, here are my broken pieces.  They seem to be mixed in with some others, I don’t know where they fit.  Take them Lord and make something beautiful as only you can.
 
Because of Him,
Linda
 
Something Beautiful – Steven Curtis Chapman
 
I see you sitting over there with your head in your hands
And the mess life’s made of your best laid plans
You really want to shake your fist
But you don’t know who to blame
Well you can blame yourself or the man upstairs
Or the guy on the screen who says he cares
But all the shame and the blame won’t change a thing
What’s done is done
But grace has just begun

And God’s says
I’m gonna turn it into something different
I’m gonna turn it into something good
I’m gonna take all the broken pieces
And make something beautiful like only I could
So put it all in the hands of the Father
Give it up, give it all over to
The only one who can turn it into
Something beautiful
Something really beautiful

We know the world got broke when it took the fall
And here we are living in the middle of it all
Longing, waiting for the day when everything’s restored
But the best of the beauty that we get to SEE
While we’re living down here in this “yet to be”
Is to watch God take the most broken things
And to hear Him say,
“When I get through, you’re gonna be amazed”

‘Cause I’m gonna turn it into something different
I’m gonna turn it into something good
I’m gonna take all the broken pieces
And make something beautiful like only I could
So put it all in the hands of the Father
Give it up, give it all over to
The only one who can turn it into

Something beautiful
Something beautiful
Something beautiful
Put all the pieces in His hands
And watch Him turn it into something beautiful

God’s gonna turn it into something different
He’s gonna turn it into something good
He’s gonna take all the broken pieces
And make something beautiful like only He could
So put it all in the hands of the Father
Give it up, give it all over to
The only one who can turn it into
Something beautiful
Something really beautiful
Something beautiful
Something really beautiful
