God Makes Beautiful Things, 02APR

On occasion I start tearing up at how intense God thinks about me – just little ole me.

He thinks this way about EVERYONE – YES, YOU TOO – WOW…

This doesn’t mean I follow Him as intensely as He follows me – I am super flawed and human and broken. As a friend once told me, our faith is like peeling away parts of an onion – get deeper and deeper with removal of the layers that veil us. When we strip away layers we really see how much He cares.

God can and does understand us because He’s the one that made us.

God makes Beautiful Things

God made and makes you Beautiful.

I always feel that God took my head, I may scramble away in my own thoughts quite often, but He wants me on His Track of Thinking. And I’m trying to NOT miss His Train… He’s the One who keeps me from a train wreck. There’s NO ONE who can understand any of those intense moments of thoughts in us like God can. There’s NO ONE who can understand anything as much as God can. And He searches the earth and the crevices of our brains for His thoughts. He makes and remakes our hearts. He knits the Word into our souls. He’s the One who brings up the beautiful from the broken, our devotion from our dust. God is the One who can and does put us back on track.

God puts all of Himself into you in order to get ALL of Himself back out.

It is Earth-shattering to realize His intention is to make “Beautiful things out of us” – as the song lyric sings.

God can and will understand how to make His Kingdom beautiful from our crumbled bricks, our mangled steel, our scattered lives. He is rebuilding us always. He has placed Jesus as the cornerstone of our house, right? Yes, He does. You are in His House.

19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. Ephesians 2

The daffodils near my house this morning were blooming so beautifully yet they were completely frozen and I brought them inside to thaw. They bloom early since I planted them near the warm house – they are protected by the warmth. We are too. That’s what God wants of us – to dwell in us – to protect our thoughts – to thaw our cold hearts – and to shine His beauty thru us as we grow inside and as His House. God holds us together as a Holy Temple for Him.

“He makes beautiful things out of the dust – He makes beautiful things out of us.”

God knows how to build forever things for His kingdom. You are to be built into a holy place for Him. God in you and you in God.

God makes you beautiful.

Amen

Beautiful Things – Gungor

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

 

You make beautiful things

You make beautiful things out of the dust

You make beautiful things

You make beautiful things out of us
