You are beautiful

On the way home tonight after babysitting Annabelle and Violet for Heather while she’s away at her church’s annual women’s conference in Springfield, I heard this incredible song by Mercy Me on KLOVE radio station: Beautiful. You may have heard it before, but I have not! Tears filled my eyes as I listened; I loved it!

If you have read any of my writings or heard me speak, you know that I am very passionate about women pursuing their passion, fulfilling their great purpose and destiny in Christ. You, dear friend, are the one God madly loves, enough to send His Son Jesus to die for you!  

Women and teenage girls are bombarded daily by images of “perfect,” air-brushed models on magazines, on the internet, and on t.v.  We compare ourselves to them, and the enemy satan lies to us constantly that we never measure up to this standard of perfection.  Or we compare ourselves to other “perfect” wives, moms, stepmoms, speakers, writers, entrepreneurs, internet gurus, women in ministry, or whoever in our mind is more beautiful, smart, successful,sweet, nice, giving,  sexy, talented, creative, wealthy, gifted, anointed, loved, organized, spontaneous, popular, etc.  No matter who it is that we are looking at, we are left staring into the mirror, feeling less than.  You are more than what is hurting you tonight! To God, you are so beautiful!  This song says it all.

Here are the lyrics to Beautiful by Mercy Me, followed by a great video with the music and lyrics. Enjoy!

Beautiful
by MercyMe
from the album The Generous Mr. Lovewell

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 for 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 find
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

You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
You are made for 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

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 are made 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
You are made for so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His
