Beautiful

I love the song Beautiful by MercyMe.  It’s about someone who doesn’t have the strength to overcome whatever is grieving them.  And it’s about the deep and abiding love of God.  In Genesis 1 the word “good” is used to describe God’s opinion of what He has just created.  When He looks at his son and daughter He calls them “very good!”  The word “good” can also be translated “beautiful” throughout Scripture.  God says that we are beautiful to Him.  We are His sacred treasure.

This song is dedicated to women everywhere.  To every mother, grandmother, daughter and sister.  Know that you are “Beautiful” to Someone and what you have given has not gone unnoticed.  And to my mothers (Terri, Sheila, and Jean)…I love you and I’m blessed by each one of you.

 

Beautiful by MercyMe

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 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

And praying that you have the heart to fight
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

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
